Cape Coral announces new two-day watering schedule

Cape Coral enforces an irrigation schedule for two days a week

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The City of Cape Coral has approved a year-round two-day irrigation watering schedule. The schedule will go into effect immediately and applies to all Cape Coral residents.

According to city officials, residents will still have the same number of hours for irrigation, but the new schedule will add more time slots to reduce demand by an estimated 40%. Officials said the schedule will allow Cape Coral to better manage watering demand, flow and pressure, and improve water pressure for reclaimed water fire hydrants.

Watering days and times will depend on the last number of the home addresses. Here is the new watering schedule:

· For addresses ending in 0: Monday and Thursday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

· For addresses ending in 1: Monday and Thursday, midnight to 4 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 2: Monday and Thursday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 3: Tuesday and Friday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

· For addresses ending in 4: Tuesday and Friday, midnight to 4 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 5: Tuesday and Friday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 6: Wednesday and Saturday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

· For addresses ending in 7: Wednesday and Saturday, midnight to 4 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 8: Wednesday and Sunday, 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.

· For addresses ending in 9: Thursday and Sunday, 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

Here are even more watering changes the city announced are coming to the area:

·    Watering new lawns and landscaping is allowed during a 30-day establishment period and will be allowed on any day except Friday from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.

·    Irrigation of new landscaping that has been in place for 31 to 90 days shall be allowed on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.

·    Businesses, properties, or developments up to and including five acres in size with irrigation systems that must irrigate multiple properties with different watering times may water on Thursday and Sunday from midnight to 4:00 a.m.

·    Businesses with watering times between 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. may water between midnight and 4:00 a.m. so as not to interfere with normal business operations.

Cape Coral officials also noted the mandatory one-day watering restriction is no longer in effect.
