Reminder about Miami-Dade County Water Restrictions
Miami-Dade County has precious water supply that must be protected and preserved. Water conservation is vital to the preservation of South Florida's ecosystems.
In Miami-Dade County, water restrictions are permanent and enforced year-round. These restrictions apply to users of any water source, including public utilities, private wells and any surface water body including canals and lakes.
So when can I water my lawn?
You may water your lawn two days a week. The same rules apply to residences and businesses.
Choose one of the two “watering windows” — either morning or evening. It is not necessary to water your lawn twice a day – it’s wasteful and can be detrimental to your landscape.
For more information on the water restrictions please visit the Miami-Dade Water Restrictions website
