REMINDER: SFWMD Issues Strict Guidelines for Landscape Irrigation Amid Drier Conditions

Deerfield Beach is urging residents to follow a two day per week irrigation schedule. Although no Water Shortage declarations are currently in effect, on April 10, 2020, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) issued an order on water conservation measures. This order has strict guidelines for property owners to follow irrigation schedules that conserve water during these drier than average conditions.

Per Rule 40E-24.201, Florida Administrative Code and under subsection 40E-24.301(1), Florida Administrative Code, local governments can choose to enforce more stringent water conservation measures, if the provision is consistent with the Year-Round Rule’s days of the week and times. Broward has enacted a provision for irrigation up to 2 days a week. Water the lawn between 7 PM and 7 AM only:

• Odd number addresses should water Wednesday and Saturday only

• Even number addresses should water Thursdays and Sundays only

Rainfall between November 2019 and March 2020 was below average, and watering two days per week will help conserve our precious water resources. The City wants to remind residents that hand washing uses very little water, and residents are encouraged to continue to frequently wash hands to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
