Reset Irrigation Timer for Spring

As you change the time on your clocks back in March to accommodate Daylight Savings Time, please remember to also change the time on your irrigation system. If you haven't already done so, it isn't too difficult and the instructions should be on the inside of the panel. As you change the time, it is a good idea to replace the 9-volt battery for your system to ensure that you don't lose your settings in the event of a power outage.

Residents in the Marion and Sumter County portion of The Villages must comply with the SWFWMD's year-round conservation measures. The year round conservation measures allow for twice-per-week watering, which gives residents additional flexibility for determining when to water. Residents are encouraged to water only if their lawn and landscape needs it and turn off their irrigation system if it has rained or if rain is predicted in the next 24 hours. Some of the signs that a lawn needs water include: blades folded in half lengthwise, footprints remaining on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it, and the top few inches of soil being dry.
