New Watering Restrictions Take Effect in Fernandina Beach
Those residences that have an odd number or no address can only water on Saturdays, and even numbered residences must only water on Sundays. Nonresidential properties must water on Tuesdays. This is for all Landscape irrigation which means outside plants and grass areas.
All watering must be done before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. You can water no more than one hour per zone.
There are some exceptions to the restrictions, such as being allowed to water new landscaping at any time of day on any day for the first 30 days and every other day for the next 30 days. You may also water in chemicals as needed within 24 hours of application.
This time of year in Northeast Florida can bring a wide variety of weather so it is important, since you can only water one day per week, that you check your sprinklers and make sure everything is working correctly.
