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.
