Water advisory issued in Cape Coral, officials consider one-day watering schedule
CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Cape Coral city officials are asking residents to do their part in water conservation.
A new advisory has been put in place as canal levels in the city continue to sink.
If people don’t pay attention to how much water they use and conditions don’t improve, the city will mandate a one-day watering schedule.
More than 4,000 illegal watering violations have been issued since the start of dry season.
High usage and illegal watering contribute to decreased irrigation pressures. An adequate supply of irrigation water is needed for the more than 800 fire hydrants that are connected to the city’s reuse system for fire suppression.
The City pumps an average of 13.5 million gallons of water each day from a reservoir in Charlotte County into the city’s freshwater canal system for irrigation usage.
