Pinellas County, Florida -- From Tuesday, Feb. 18 through Friday, Feb. 28, residents are being asked to curb all unnecessary indoor and outdoor water use.

Pinellas County officials say the shortage is due to a scheduled construction project to replace aging infrastructure which will result in a more cost-efficient system that will provide a more reliable supply of drinking water for the county.

Tampa Bay Water and the City of St. Petersburg will provide Pinellas with enough water to meet average daily water demands. However, residents are being asked torefrain from outdoor water use activities such as lawn irrigation, pressure washing, car washing, installing new sod/landscaping, operating fountains and filling pools.

Residents are also encouraged to reduce indoor water usage by practicing common water conservation methods such as reducing shower time, avoiding running water while washing dishes and brushing teeth or shaving.
