Irrigation may be done at any time with a hand-held hose provided it is fitted with an automatic shutoff nozzle.  This applies to all sources of irrigation water.

Please note: If you are replacing sod and need to irrigate more than the restrictions allow, you must mail, email or deliver your current receipt for sod to:

Water Conservation Section
500 W. Lake Mary Blvd.

After receiving the receipt for sod or landscape material, you may be given permission to irrigate for an additional 30 days.
