Have your say about Lake County lawn-watering limits

Published 7/2/2008
Central Florida's water woes are expected to grow worse because of a growing population.

To conserve the precious resource, the St. Johns River Water Management District is proposing to limit watering to once a week from November through March and no more than three-fourths of an inch each time.

During the other months of the year, watering would continue to be allowed twice a week -- the days depending on address numbers -- but no more than half an inch of water on each of those days.

On Thursday, residents can learn about the new irrigation proposal and give their opinion about it during a workshop at 10 a.m. in the Lake County Commission chambers at the round courthouse, 315 W. Main St., Tavares.
