Water Restrictions
Watering Rules
Strict watering rules are in effect for Temple Terrace and nearby areas.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District has imposed Phase II water-conservation measures for the Tampa Bay area. The rules apply to Temple Terrace and other areas except where stricter measures are imposed by local governments. The rules in unincorporated Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa, for example, may vary from those in Temple Terrace.

The following restrictions are in effect for residents who receive water service from the City of Temple Terrace:

Lawn watering days and times for the twice-per-week schedule are as follows:
    • Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
    • Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
    • Locations without a discernable address, such as rights-of-way and other common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or Friday before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

Plants & Shrubbery
Hand-watering of plants and shrubs (other than lawns) may be done at any time, as needed.

New Lawns
New lawns and plants have a 60-day establishment period. On days 1-30, they may be watered any day of the week. During days 31-60, they may be watered approximately every other day. Even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Odd-numbered addresses may water on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

When establishing new lawns, please advise the Code Compliance Department at (813) 506-6680 to avoid
being cited for watering violations.
