SUMMER FERTILIZER BAN
Each year, the citywide fertilizer ban is in effect June 1-Sept. 30.
Increased rainfall in the summer months can cause nutrients from fertilizer to reach water bodies and lead to environmental issues..
Due to drought conditions and increased demand for water, it’s important now more than ever to follow St. Petersburg’s year-round watering restrictions and eliminate wasteful and unnecessary water uses.
Customers with reclaimed water are encouraged to water no more than three times per week, between the hours of 5 to 9 a.m. or 7 to 11 p.m.
Unnecessary and wasteful uses of water are always prohibited. Examples include hosing down driveways and impervious surfaces, allowing water to flow unattended and using water inefficiently.
Additionally, customers are required to test irrigation systems for leaks and inefficiencies.
More stringent watering restrictions may be temporarily put into place if conditions worsen. Find St. Pete’s current local watering restrictions at stpete.org/wateringrestrictions.
Every drop helps. Consider implementing water-saving practices. Find ideas, resources and rebate programs at stpete.org/WaterConservation.
Carolina resident and President of RSBP Events, Brooke Palmer Kuhl, had the great idea to support local food trucks by inviting them to Venetian Isles while we're staying at home. The first few events have been a huge success so we plan to keep doing every Friday in May, then once a month through the summer.
Below is a schedule of events planned so far:
April 17 - Street Surfer
April 24 - Slammer Shop
May 1 - Mr. C's Grilled Cheese
May 8 - Taco Lady and Margaritas
