Orlando might restrict water use further

Published June 3, 2008
The city is considering a plan to enact mandatory lawn-watering restrictions, allowing sprinklers to run only two days a week during the warm months and one day a week during cool months.

The restrictions follow the lead of the St. Johns River Water Management District, which is revamping its watering rules and encouraging cities and counties in its 18-county jurisdiction to follow suit. Orange County passed its own rules last week.

...Public-works director Alan Oyler told commissioners that the demand for potable water from homes and businesses will outstrip Orlando's water allotment from the underground aquifer around 2014 or 2015.
