After receiving the receipt for sod or landscape material, you may be given permission to irrigate for an additional 30 days.
 

Why is it important to conserve water?



You can survive 3 weeks without food but only 3 days without water. The high quality groundwater that provides our drinking water is one of our most valuable natural resources. The population of Seminole County continues to grow rapidly, and we may not be able to continue using water the way we do now without creating environmental and financial impacts. Learning to use less water today is the best and least expensive way to avoid possible problems in the future.

!New Watering Restrictions
Scientifically speaking, St. Augustine grass only needs 3/4" twice a week during the hot summer days to keep your grass alive.  Too much irrigation can actually harm your grass by creating, fungus or root rot. 

In the cooler months, (November to March) remember to set your irrigation timers to water only (1) day a week (Eastern Standard Time) during the cooler months. This will save you money and our precious resources.
 
!Water Conservation Ordinance #2009-24 (PDF) [685KB]
Enacted by the Board of County Commissioners on July 28, 2009, this amended Ordinance allows the County to enforce established watering days.  The Ordinance is County-wide and does include all water sources (reclaimed, lakes, wells, etc.)
