Daylight Saving Watering Restrictions
Daylight Saving Watering Restrictions
I know that most of us are upset about the fact that we lost an hour of sleep last night because of Daylight savings, especially when we have to get up real early to be able to park for the Concourse d’Elegance, but we can look forward to changing our sprinkler systems to coincide with the new water restrictions. I know, everyone is excited about this, but it is a good thing for our landscapes.

According to the St. Johns River Water Management, during daylight saving time we are allowed to water twice a week instead of once. Daylight savings time is from the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November.

Homes with oOdd numbered addresses can now water on Wednesday and Saturday. Even numbered addresses may water on Thursday and Sunday. No watering is allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and you must not water for more than one hour per zone. These restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water and water from public and private utilities.

I am sure this excites quite a few people and gives them something very important to do tomorrow. While you are doing this, since the weather should be rather nice, take the time to check your sprinklers to make sure they are watering properly and the clock is set to the right time and watering the correct areas.
