Environmental Protection Leaders Ask Residents to Use Less Water
They're asking you to use less water. Environmental Protection leaders say April is Water Conservation Month.
"With so many people pulling water and trying to use the resource, there's a finite amount of about how much water is available so we all need to do our best to minimize the use and use whatever we need as wisely as we can," Agustin Olmos (Water Resources Manager) said.
Alachua County and River Management Leaders say residents can water their lawn twice a week now. Before Daylight Saving Time began last month, residents only had one day.
People with odd numbered addresses can water on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Those with even numbered addresses can water on Thursdays and Sundays.
Everyone needs to water their lawn before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. For more information on water restrictions, visit the following links:
