Check your irrigation system when you 'spring forward'

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is reminding residents to check the timers on their irrigation system controllers this weekend, which is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time.

Unless your city or county already has stricter hours in effect, residents may only water before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Properties more than two acres in size may only water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Under the current Modified Phase II restrictions, lawn and landscape watering remains limited to a one-day-per-week schedule. Please check with your local government or utility for your watering day.
