Reclaimed Water Restrictions Continue in North Pinellas
The lack of rainfall has reduced the amount of reclaimed water in storage to a seriously low level.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Reclaimed water in north Pinellas County will continue to be unavailable on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays until further notice while the system is shut down for storage level recovery.
Pinellas County Utilities customers north of Curlew Road should continue limiting their reclaimed water use and follow the reduced reclaimed water availability irrigation schedule to help with this resource recovery initiative, county officials say. These restrictions limit reclaimed water irrigation during authorized hours to two days per week based on house number:
- Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday and/or Saturday
- Addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday and/or Sunday
- Addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday and/or Sunday
- Prohibited lawn irrigation between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- Reclaimed water unavailable on Monday, Thursday and Friday.
During the past several months, the lack of rain has caused levels of reclaimed water to decline to the point of exhausting the water in storage and potentially damaging pump equipment. As the return of seasonal rainfall helps stabilize reclaimed water supplies, the reclaimed water system’s capacity will be re-evaluated. This schedule is anticipated to remain in effect until storage levels recover, at which time the reclaimed water system will be returned to full operation.
