Remember to Reset Timers on Irrigation System Controllers for Daylight-Saving Time
Tampa, FL November 13, 2006 - Please don’t risk receiving a water use citation because your irrigation system controller timer has not been reset.
The Tampa Water Department would like to remind customers to check the timers on their irrigation system controller to ensure they are set correctly for daylight-savings time. While some timers may automatically reset for leap year and time changes, everyone should confirm the timer to their irrigation system is programmed in accordance with the local water restrictions.

The Water Department’s water restrictions remain in effect and are enforced seven days a week. Water restrictions inside Tampa’s city limits allow residents with numeric addresses ending in an even number (or the letters A – M) to water on Tuesday only, and numeric addresses ending in an odd number (or the letters N – Z) to water on Sunday only. Watering is limited to a complete irrigation cycle and is not allowed between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on your designated days.

The water use restrictions do not apply to the City's South Tampa Area Reclaimed water customers. However, addresses ending in an odd number are encouraged to water on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday or Saturday. Addresses ending in an even number are encouraged to use Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday as watering days.

Irrigation days and times for Tampa Water Department customers living outside of the city limits are available by calling the Hillsborough County water restriction information line at (813) 275-7094.

The Tampa Water Department serves a 211-square mile area with a service population of approximately 550,000 people. The Department’s mission is to provide high-quality potable water in sufficient quantity while enhancing customer service and ensuring environmental stewardship through innovative and efficient operation and interactive community approach.
