Residents and businesses should currently follow the South Florida Water Management District's Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule. This water conservation 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.
The District continually monitors regional water resources and weather conditions and closely tracks long-range weather forecasts. When conditions become too dry or water resources become strained, the District may enact water shortage restrictions that go further than the Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule to protect regional water supplies.
There are no water shortage restrictions in effect beyond the Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule at this time. Any water shortage restrictions put in place by the District would be posted on this page.
