Increased watering allowed in Duval County
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Duval County residents may once again set lawn and landscape irrigation to two days per week thanks to the switchover of Daylight Savings Time.
Properties with an address that ends in an odd number are allowed to water on Wednesday and Saturday.
Addresses that end in an even number may water on Thursday and Sunday. Non-residential irrigation is only permitted on Tuesday and Friday.
Watering is allowed only before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. year-round.
Violators can be fined for not following irrigation rules.
According to the City of Jacksonville, the watering restrictions are designed to conserve the water supply and reduce the amount of contaminants flowing into the St. Johns River.
