The Suwannee River Water Management District has created a new page on its website to provide more information about the new year-round water conservation requirements for landscape irrigation that went into effect Jan. 6. The webpage also provides water conservation tips for homeowners, utilities, farmers and other users.
A link to the new page is provided in the “Choose Your Days” box on the District’s website homepage. The website also has a link to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the new landscape irrigation rule. The FAQs are accessible from the “Resources” link on the homepage. Under the new rule, homeowners and others within the District are asked to limit landscape irrigation to one or two days per week, depending upon the time of the year. The District covers all of Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor, and Union counties and parts of Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson, Levy, and Putnam counties.
