OUC’s new Water Enforcement Team is hitting the streets of Orlando to help make customers aware of the St. Johns River Water Management District landscape irrigation guidelines. With the end of Daylight Saving Time on November 6, watering will be allowed only one day a week until the second Sunday in March.
The patrollers are on the lookout for residences and businesses that are watering on the wrong day or at the wrong time. When they spot a violation, they’ll leave a notice at the property with informational material and an offer to set up a courtesy appointment to reset the irrigation timer.
With irrigation accounting for more than half of Central Florida’s total water consumption, helping customers reprogram their timers is an effective way to greatly reduce their water consumption and monthly water costs.
Customers can call 407.658.7777 to report a watering violation in their neighborhood.
