Watering Restrictions

City of St. Petersburg Marketing Department St. Petersburg's Watering Restrictions

Due to drought conditions and increased demand for water, it’s important now more than ever to follow St. Pete’s year-round watering restrictions and eliminate wasteful and unnecessary water uses.

Customers with potable, private well and surface water sources may water twice weekly, between the hours of 5 to 9 a.m. and/or 7 to 11 p.m.

• Addresses ending in an even number may irrigate on Tuesdays and Saturdays only.

• Addresses ending in an odd number and locations with no address may irrigate on Wednesdays and Sundays only.

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

2020 Graduates

With Covid-19 still affecting our activities, we still want to honor the 2020 Snell Isle graduates so parents, we need your help!

As I ride Snell Isle, there’s many yard signs noting this year’s graduates and I’m sure there are other graduates without yard signs. We’d appreciate parents taking a snapshot of your Snell Isle graduate near their yard sign, if there is one, or elsewhere if not. Please send their picture and name along with parents’ name(s) and school. Depending on how many we receive, we can try to put them in our June Panther. If we get an overwhelming response, we can at least post everyone’s picture on our Instagram page on our EnjoySnellIsle.com website.

It would be helpful for you to also provide a phone number when you send me the picture in case there’s a question. THANK YOU for helping all of Snell Isle celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates. We’re very proud of them but also sad they won’t get to enjoy the traditional ceremony we’ve all come to know and love.

Please send pics to my email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
