OUC is reminding local residents that when we “spring forward” into Daylight Saving Time, the watering schedule is back to two days per week. The new water restrictions began March 12th and will end on November 5th.
So what days can you water? To comply with the following St. Johns Water Management District’s watering restrictions, OUC residential water customers are reminded to adjust their water schedules:
Homes with odd-numbered addresses water on Wednesday and Saturday.
Homes with even-numbered addresses water on Thursday and Sunday.
Non-residential properties water on Tuesday and Friday.
Officials advise to water only when needed and not between 10am and 4pm. Residents should water for no more than one hour per zone.
If you have planted a section of new grass or plants, that area may be watered every day for the first 30 days and every other day for the next 30 days as needed, after which you should return to the regular watering schedule. Remember, only the new plants and grass may be watered every day.
If you need to run a test of your irrigation system, you may run the system at any time for 20 minutes per zone.
All local water restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water and water from public and private utilities.
OUC provides service to the cities of Orlando and St. Cloud and portions of unincorporated Orange County and Osceola County in Central Florida.
