Water Restrictions

Water Restrictions

As of February 28, 2017, current county average rainfall for Nassau, Flagler, Baker, Clay, Putnam, Marion, and Lake counties was low or below the 15th percentile. As of March 2, 2017, the U.S. Drought Monitor identifies a significant portion of the District as “abnormally dry.” Monitoring indicates that stream flows are average to very low (less than the 25th percentile) in these areas.

Although conditions have not yet reached the point where there is the anticipation of an insufficient amount of water to meet anticipated user demand and protect the water resources in the District, current conditions do warrant heightened water conservation awareness in those portions of Nassau, Flagler, Baker, Clay, Putnam, Marion, and Lake counties located within the District.

Based upon the foregoing, it is hereby ORDERED

  •  A water shortage warning is issued for all surface and groundwater sources throughout those portions of Baker, Clay, Flagler, Lake, Nassau, Marion, and Putnam counties located within the District, except for the unincorporated area lying within The Villages of Marion, FQD (for which water shortage-related orders have been delegated to the Southwest Florida Water Management District)
  • All classes of water users are encouraged to reduce their water use and to conserve water to the maximum extent possible.
  • All landscaping irrigation users are urged to voluntarily reduce their water use by limiting irrigation to no more than two days each week, which is also required by Rule 40C-2.042, F.A.C., during daylight saving time.
  • All golf course irrigation users are encouraged to use water in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 40C-21.631 (3)(e), F.A.C.
  • All water-based recreation users are encouraged to use water in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 40C-21.631 (3)(f) F.A.C.
