Outdoor Water Restrictions

Miami-Dade County's precious water supply is vital to preserving South Florida's ecosystems and, as such, must be protected and sustainably managed.

Water Restrictions
To conserve water, the County implements and enforces year-round restrictions that apply to any water source, including public utilities, private wells, and any surface water body, including canals and lakes.

When can I water my lawn?
Residential and business lawns can be watered two days a week using the following rotating schedule:

  • ODD-numbered home address (those that end in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) are permitted to irrigate on Wednesdays and Saturdays, before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
  • EVEN-numbered addresses (those ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) are allowed to irrigate on Thursdays and Sundays, before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
You can choose one of the two “watering windows” — either morning or evening. It's not necessary to water your lawn twice a day – it’s not only wasteful but can be detrimental to your landscape.
