Tightened Water Restrictions Apply to Charlotte County

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (May 24, 2017) – Charlotte County is reminding residents and businesses to follow increased water restrictions approved by the Southwest Florida Water Management District’s (District) on Tuesday.

Under the modified Phase III water shortage order, lawn watering is reduced to once-per-week and allowable watering hours also are reduced. Micro-irrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas are still allowed any day, if needed. Additionally, there are now limits on car washing and homeowners’ associations may not enforce any deed restrictions which could cause an increase in water use. The restrictions will remain in effect through August 1, 2017.

Additional details regarding the watering of new lawns and plants, reclaimed water and other water uses can be found on the District’s website at WaterMatters.org/restrictions.

Visit CharlotteCountyFL.gov and click “Utilities,” and then “Conservation & Outreach” for related information and updates.
