City Reminds Cape Residents to Follow Watering Schedule

Cape Coral Code Compliance is increasing enforcement efforts due to the higher than normal usage. There were 315 illegal watering cases last week. Following the year-round schedule and conservation is important. Setting automatic timers to water 20-30 minutes in each zone should provide adequate irrigation for residential lawns.  Hand watering also is allowed at any time. 

The two-day watering schedule applies to all residents whether they use the City’s dual-water system or private wells for irrigation.  The watering days and hours depend on the last number of the home address. 

Here is the two-day schedule in effect year-round for all of Cape Coral:

Monday and Friday:

Midnight to 4 a.m. for addresses ending in 0

Monday and Friday:

4 a.m. to 8 a.m. for addresses ending in 1

Wednesday and Saturday:

Midnight to 4 a.m. for addresses ending in 3 and 5

Wednesday and Saturday:

4 a.m. to 8 a.m. for addresses ending in 7 and 9

Thursday and Sunday:

Midnight to 4 a.m. for addresses ending in 2 and 4

Thursday and Sunday:

4 a.m. to 8 a.m. for addresses ending in 6 and 8

 

Non-residential, duplexes and other multi-family units can water on Monday and Friday from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
