When are My Watering Days?
April and May often are among the driest months of the year. And with temperatures rising as summer approaches, the lack of rainfall can parch landscapes.
So far this spring, rainfall has been about average in Hillsborough County. Still, people are asking: When are my watering days?
With no special dry-season restrictions in place, they're the same as usual: Mondays and Thursdays for addresses ending in 0, 1, 2, or 3; Tuesdays and Fridays for those ending in 4, 5, or 6; and Wednesdays and Saturdays for addresses ending in 7, 8, or 9.
Except for hand-watering and low-volume irrigation, landscape watering must take place before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. on allowable days -- either from midnight to 8 a.m., or from 6 p.m. to midnight.
Property owners and renters in unincorporated Hillsborough County may register to receive notification of any changes in water-use restrictions.
Residents of Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City should check those cities' websites for any different restrictions.
