The Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule (Chapter 40E-24, F.A.C.) is a component of the District's Comprehensive Water Conservation Program, which was established to encourage more responsible use of water resources throughout South Florida.

In effect since 2010, the Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule limits landscape watering to two days a week throughout the South Florida Water Management District, with a three-day-a-week provision for some counties. In all cases, reclaimed water used for irrigation is subject to voluntary watering limits, unless otherwise restricted by a local government or utility.

IMPORTANT: Local governments may adopt alternative landscape irrigation ordinances based on local water demands, system limitations or resource availability. Several counties, cities and utilities have exercised this option. As a result, residents should always check local ordinances for watering days and times.
