Water Restrictions

Water Restrictions in Miami Springs

Watering is not allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Hand-watering with one hose fitted with an automatic shut-off nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes per
day for landscape stress relief and to prevent plant die-off.

Restrictions apply to all users of any water resource within Miami-Dade County, whether from
publicly or privately owned water utility sewer systems, private wells or private connections to
surface water bodies.

Residents and businesses with an ODD-numbered street address (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Lawn
watering is permitted on WEDNESDAYS and SATURDAYS from 4 p.m. to 10 a.m.

Residents and businesses with an EVEN-numbered street address (ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8*),
no street address, or who water both even and odd addresses within the same zones, including
multi-family units and Homeowner Associations:
Lawn watering is permitted on THURSDAYS and SUNDAYS from 4 p.m. to 10 a.m.

Residents should choose from one of two “watering windows” (before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m.) on
their designated irrigation days. For the most efficient use of water, residents should avoid
irrigating during both time periods on the same day.
To report a water restriction violation, visit the 3-1-1 submit a service request website and
select Other under the All tab or call 3-1-1.

SOME EXCEPTIONS
Restrictions don’t apply for car and boat washing, pressure cleaning of paved surfaces, decorative
fountains and  water-based recreation (e.g. swimming pools, water slides).
Users of 100 percent reclaimed water are exempt from restrictions, but encouraged to conserve
water.
Low-volume irrigation, including the use of drop and micro jet systems that apply water directly to
plant root zones, is not restricted but is encouraged to be reduced.
