Watering restrictions in the City of Oviedo
Reclaim: As the cities strive to save potable water, city council passed Ordinance #1479 in January 04, 2010. This ordinance allows irrigation watering three (3) days a week year round. The schedule applies to reclaim customers only.
Earlier, the St. John's Water Management District (SJWMD) made significant changes to scheduled irrigation days. These changes were enacted to further enhance existing water conservation measures and conserve limited water resources. To comply with the SJWMD mandate, the Oviedo City Council was required to revise existing landscape irrigation policies and the applicable City Code of Ordinances. The regulations apply to water resources derived from:
Ground (well) or
Surface water (pump)
Public utility (potable and irrigation system water).
The new irrigation schedule does not apply to reclaim water.
To view the changes to the scheduled irrigation days please click here.
Water Conservation Ordinance: On May 7, 2007 the Oviedo City Council passed Ordinance #1401. This Ordinance updates irrigation restrictions to include all private wells, pumps, ground and surface water sources, in addition to potable water sources. Fines for irrigating on non-irrigation days have increased; $75 will be fined for the second violation; $150 will be fined for the third violation. If fines are not paid water service will be disconnected.
The current City of Oviedo watering restrictions are as follows
Homes and businesses with even numbered or no numbered Addresses may irrigate Thursday and Sunday only from 12:00 midnight to 10:00 am and again from 4:00 pm to 12:00 midnight.
Homes and businesses with odd numbered addresses may irrigate Wednesday and Saturday only from 12:00 midnight to 10:00 am and again from 4:00 pm to 12:00 midnight.
These restrictions are subject to strict enforcement and should be followed at all times.
Note: If you utilize the Alafaya Utilities reuse/reclaimed system for irrigation the days for watering are as follows: Ekana Green: All common areas, odd and even numbered addresses irrigate on Monday and Friday.
Only water before 9 a.m and after 4 p.m. Alafaya Utilities turns off the water at all other times and when supplies are low. Alafaya Utilities recommends limiting irrigation to one inch of coverage per week. If you wish to contact Alafaya Utilities please call 407-869-1919.
When will these restrictions be lifted?
Given the current demand and the expected extreme growth of demand on the Florida Aquifer, water restrictions are expected to remain in effect indefinitely in the Central Florida area as well as many other locations in the state and United States due to other water source stresses.
Why no watering 10am-4pm?
Watering your lawn or landscaping between 10am and 4pm is nearly 100% waste...especially in the hot Florida sun. What happens when you spill water on the ground during the day? A wet spot appears for a minute or so and then disappears due to the sun evaporating it. The same thing happens when watering your lawn. To make things worse, the water that does happen to stay on the grass for a little while can actually aide the sun in burning your lawn. The optimal time to water your lawn is between 4pm and 10am during the night. Use you browsers "back" button to return to the Water Conservation homepage and click on the question about efficient sprinkler systems for more info.
Irrigation System Maintenance: The City of Oviedo allows maintenance to be conducted on potable (drinking) watering irrigation systems at anytime during the day, with a 10 minute limit per sprinkler zone. If that limit is violated a warning or fine may be issued.
