Outdoor Water Restrictions

Miami-Dade County has precious water supply that must be protected and preserved. Water conservation is vital to the preservation of South Florida's ecosystems.

Water Restrictions
In Miami-Dade County, water restrictions are permanent and enforced year-round. These restrictions apply to users of any water source, including public utilities, private wells and any surface water body including canals and lakes.

So when can I water my lawn?
You may water your lawn two days a week. The same rules apply to residences and businesses.
  • 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.
Choose one of the two “watering windows” — either morning or evening. It is not necessary to water your lawn twice a day – it’s wasteful and can be detrimental to your landscape.
