Yes, depending on your area everyone is required to water once a week(commerical or residental). Sat or Sunday watering only. This time of year you really don't need to water more than once per week.

watering

it is at 2 days per week now.. I just thought when it went to winter daylight hours it changed back to once a week.. I cover a few counties.. orange, osceola and lake.. daylight hours change 4th november.. So I think I maya have to phone all counties.. last year we went down to the once a week schedule.. just dont want any customers getting violations. Gwen

You don't need the counties to tell you when to change. We do the same as Williams once per week.

Yep My Catch 22


My area of S W Fla is right on the line and has a Central Florida Water District which is more conservative than the more liberal S W Water District of the next town south of me.

Now the real issue here is my area has a Huge Fresh Water source that just pours into the Gulf of Mexico but we can't water because we are in the wrong district. BTW just two miles up the River from me is my county's Water plant that supplies 4 other counties.
