The Importance of Water Conservation
Fresh, clean water is a limited precious resource. Water Conservation is the most important action we can take to sustain our water supplies, meet future needs, and reduce demands on Florida’s water. Using water efficiently and avoiding waste, is essential to ensure that we have adequate water today and into the future. It’s up to all of us to use the water we have wisely. Make conserving water a daily part of your life.

There are many ways that Irrigation Restrictions are beneficial. These restrictions help to ensure that we are:
- Watering infrequently, deeply and thoroughly to encourage deep roots for healthier and stronger grass
- Only watering at the right time of day- before 10am or after 4pm
- Not over-watering our lawns, making them less susceptible to disease and pests
- Not wasting money on water that our lawn does not use beneficially
In order to provide adequate service to all of our potable water and reuse water customers and comply with South Florida Water Management District conservation initiatives, the City of St. Cloud has imposed mandatory 2 day a week watering schedules for both residential and commercial customers. Watering schedules are set by the last digit of your home or business's physical address. There is a schedule for both potable water irrigation and reuse water irrigation. if you are unsure of what type of irrigation water you have at your home or business, a tell tale sign would be the color of the irrigation heads. Purple irrigation heads are specifically used for reuse irrigation and your irrigation meter would also have a purple cap inside of the meter box. If you still have a question as to which irrigation schedule to follow, please contact Customer Service at 407-957-7344, and they will gladly assist you.
