These restrictions apply to all customers in our service area and are based upon, and in some cases more stringent than, those of the SWFWMD and the county. Except for reclaimed water, which has its own restrictions outlined herein, these watering restrictions apply to all sources of water including drinking water, wells, and surface waters such as ponds or lakes. Within our service area, these restrictions generally supersede any other watering restrictions from the SWFWMD or Pinellas County except during any emergency orders requiring even further restrictions.

Protecting Your Plumbing and Our Environment

When items, such as flushable wipes, are flushed down the toilet, they do not break down in water like toilet paper. Continued flushing of these items may result in clogging or breaking of pipes from homes or in the sewer system. This may lead to a sewer backup into the residence. However, even when no backups occur at the home, the City must employ expensive techniques to remove such items or to repair broken pipes. These types of repair and treatment take a major toll on the City’s operating budget and associated utility bills. When sewer systems are clogged or pipes are broken, this creates a sanitary sewer overflow. This means that any wastewater contents in the pipes or manholes will discharged into the environment. This can have serious effects on public health, recreation, & surface water quality. Seventy percent of all overflows are caused by line/main breaks or line blockages. (NRDC 2000) Help keep the City of Tarpon Springs looking beautiful by preventing sewer overflows and reducing treatment cost by not placing trash/debris down your toilet! What should always go in the garbage instead of the toilet?
