THE ST. JOHNS WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT IRRIGATION RULE

The Water Management District‘s restrictions allow a maximum of twice weekly irrigation, except in the winter season, from potable water sources. During Eastern Standard Time (winter) irrigation is further reduced to once per week. Plants are typically dormant and overwatered in the winter season. The rule was implemented as the Floridan aquifer, Central Florida’s primary source of drinking water, is becoming stressed from over pumping. It is estimated that up to 60% of the Central Florida drinking water supply is lost to irrigation. The rule applies to private wells, lakes and public water systems such as the City potable water system serving city residences. The rule does not apply to reclaimed water.

RECLAIMED WATER LANDSCAPE IRRIGATION SCHEDULE

Reclaimed water used for irrigation saves groundwater and is a benefit to the residential community it serves. The Cities of Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, Lake Mary, Sanford, Longwood, Heathrow, Oviedo, Winter Springs, Geneva, Chuluota, Casselberry, Winter Park, Windermere reclaimed irrigation schedule is developed to maximize this alternative resource. The use of reclaimed water for irrigation is not restricted by St. Johns River Water Management District rule. Reclaimed water is a sustainable resource because it comes from recycled wastewater, not the drinking water aquifer. Reclaimed irrigation water is ideal for yards as it contains nutrients for plants, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, which are stripped from potable water. Using reclaimed water irrigation is environmentally beneficial, not only creating a greener yard, but helping sustain aquifer reservoirs.
