Residents and businesses of Broward County – including the City of Lauderdale Lakes – are limited to a two-day-per-week landscape irrigation schedule with two “watering windows”.
For Lauderdale Lakes residents this means:
- Odd street addresses (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) may irrigate lawns and landscapes on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
- Even street addresses (ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) may irrigate lawns and landscapes on Thursdays and Sundays from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
- Violators are subject to warnings, fines and jail.
Hand-watering with one hose fitted with an automatic shut-off nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes per day for landscape stress relief and to prevent plant die-off. Additional watering days and times are allocated for the establishment of new lawns and landscapes.
No restrictions apply to other outside water uses, such as for car and boat washing, pressure cleaning of paved surfaces, decorative fountains and water-based recreation (e.g. swimming pools, water slides).
