City assists "sensible sprinklers"

City assists “sensible sprinklers”

As we roll into the “dry season,” the City of St. Petersburg and the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) are helping encourage good watering habits through the “Sensible Sprinkling Program.”

This Program offers a FREE check-up to water customers with operable in-ground sprinkler systems using potable (drinking) water, reclaimed water, or well water. Selected participants will receive a sprinkler system evaluation with site-specific recommendations, a diagram of the sprinkler layout, installation of a rain sensor (if one is not in use on the site), water conservation information, and an automatic shut-off hose nozzle.

“It’s a great way to help our customers understand and enhance sprinkler systems,” said Water Conservation Coordinator Chris Claus. “This not only helps keep citizens’ lawns and gardens more appropriately irrigated, it helps save water -- our most precious natural resource.”

To participate, city residents need to complete the Sensible Sprinkling application and forward by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For more information, check out the city’s water conservation web site at or call 892-5611.

New Safety Tips

All over the City, we are experiencing an uptick in car thefts, burglaries and other crime. Recall the HOT WHEELS expose the Tampa Bay Times printed earlier this year? Well, for a while things calmed down it seemed, but now - especially when folks let their guard down - it’s back in the forefront.

Please be mindful, if you are accustomed to pulling into your driveway or garage and start to unload packages, groceries, etc. and you leave your keys, key fob, purse, or wallet in the car. What if someone jumped in your car and took off? IT HAPPENS! All it takes is one instant for the thugs to high-jack a vehicle in a flash! We have all worked hard for what we have, yet it can be stolen in an instant when we let our guard down. DON’T DO IT!

Lock those car doors and turn the ignition off, take your keys, fob and purse inside…even if just for a quick trip inside. It’s not worth it to give the thugs a crime of opportunity. I remind you…it’s happening ALL OVER TOWN. Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen to YOU!

This next article from Pasco Sheriff’s Office, pertains to children being victimized…Pasco Deputies Warn Parents: Children Solicited Through Apps. The sheriff’s Cyber Investigations Unit has spotted this trend over the last two months involving the abuse of social media and preteens…

Please, please try to be ON GUARD at all times. If you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. Our St Pete Police (or any police department) would much rather come to investigate and prevent a crime than deal with the aftermath OF a crime! Please watch out for one another and…Stay Safe.
