Change to Daylight Savings Time Changes Palm Coast Watering Restrictions

Check your sprinkler system to make sure you are in compliance.

Palm Coast, FL – March 15, 2010 – Daylight Saving Time is here and days are getting longer. Along with changing your clocks you should also make sure your sprinkler system is set in accordance with changed Palm Coast irrigation restrictions.

With Florida’s conversion to Daylight Savings Time last weekend, City of Palm Coast irrigation restrictions are also converted. Irrigation with private wells is prohibited between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Irrigation with City supplied water, under a resolution of Excess Demand Level #1, allows for watering only between midnight and 10:00 a.m., according to the following schedule:

Irrigation is limited to two days per week:

  • Odd numbered addresses or no addresses – Wednesday and Saturday
  • Even numbered addresses – Thursday & Sunday
  • Non-residential – Tuesday and Friday

Exceptions to these restrictions include: irrigating new landscaping allowed at any time of day on any day for the initial 30 days and every other day for the next 30 days; watering of fertilizers allowed anytime within 24 hours of application; irrigating using a hand-held hose equipped with a spray nozzle that can be adjusted so water flows only as needed allowed anytime. The use of water from a reclaimed water system is also allowed any time. For more information, please contact Brian Matthews, City of Palm Coast Environmental Specialist at 386-986-2353.

    Daylight Savings Time Change

    Thank you for the update reminder for us to change our clocks. If Palm Coast officials cite anyone for them watering their lawms for one hour difference due to this time change, the city is certainly missing the boat, as they have many, many more serious problems then this.
