Homeowners in Orange County can now water twice a week

Orange County utilities loosens restriction for warmer weather

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Homeowners in Orange County will be able to water their lawns twice a week during the warmer season.

Beginning this Sunday, Orange County Utilities will lift its one-day-aweek restriction until November 3.

"Although the water restriction has been extended to two-days-a-week, it is important that property owners pay attention to the needs of their lawn and landscape," said Jacqueline Torbert, Manager of Orange County Utilities' Water Division.

"Watering only when necessary is an important component both to the health of lawns and to conserving water in Orange County," she said.

Homes with even-numbered addresses water only on Thursday and Sunday, homes with odd-numbered addresses water only on Wednesday and Saturday, and nonresidential properties water only on Tuesday and Friday.

Watering is restricted to no more than one hour per zone and is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

These restrictions apply to private wells and pumps, ground or surface water, and water from public and private utilities.
