Water Restrictions

The St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) encourages local governments to assist in enforcing the District’s watering restrictions by the adoption of local ordinances incorporating the provisions of the District’s rule.  Therefore, the Town of Pierson approved Ordinance 2011-04 providing for local implementation of the water conservation rule for landscape irrigation of the SJRWMD.

Mandatory lawn watering restrictions specify the days when you may water. These days depend on whether you have an odd or even numbered address, and the time of year.
