Pinellas County, Florida -- Pinellas County has scheduled construction to upgrade part of the public water supply system, which will require a shutdown of the main pipeline providing water.

The construction is expected to take 10 days to complete and is expected to begin in early February. During this construction period, Tampa Bay Water along with the city of St. Petersburg will provide Pinellas County with sufficient water supply to meet the average daily water demands.

However, citizens should refrain from scheduling excessive water use activities during the month of February such as pressure washing, installing new sod/landscaping, and filling pools.

Citizens are also reminded that Pinellas County is under a Phase II Water Shortage Order limiting lawn irrigation to one day per week on an assigned day based on house address.

For more information on other water restrictions and to find out assigned watering days, visit The Pinelllas County website or contact customer service at (727) 464-4000.
