Water Shortage Restrictions

Residents and businesses should always follow the South Florida Water Management District's Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule. The rule limits landscape irrigation to two days a week, with a three-day-a-week provision for some counties. Utilizing the rule's flexibility, some city and county governments have adopted alternative landscape irrigation ordinances based on local water demands or system limitations.

When conditions become too dry in South Florida, the District may enact water shortage restrictions that go further than the Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule to protect regional water supplies. Any water shortage restrictions put in place by the District would be posted on this page.
