Watering limits imposed

Drought conditions have spurred the Southwest Florida Water Management District to impose lawn watering limits for the region, including Anna Maria Island.

The "severe water shortage restrictions" call for one-day watering of properties on the following schedule:

  • Addresses with house number ending in 0 or 1 - irrigate Monday.
  • Addresses with house number ending in 2 or 3 - irrigate on Tuesday.
  • Addresses with house number ending in 4 or 5 - irrigate on Wednesday.
  • Addresses with house number ending in 6 or 7 - irrigate on Thursday.
  • Addresses with house number ending in 8 or 9 - irrigate on Friday.

Properties of less than two acres may water before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Properties of more than two acres should water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m.
