    As you may have heard, the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) recently tightened water restrictions in Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties.  Tampa has curtailed lawn water sprinkler irrigation, and only hand watering or microirrigation is allowed.  At present, there are fewer restrictions on the use of reclaimed water for irrigation.

              Given that similar new rules may be applied to other areas, you may find it helpful to know that we have prepared three videos on reclaimed water that are called 1) What is it?, 2) Where is it used?, and 3) Can I use it on my lawn?  These videos are available at http://www.crec.ifas.ufl.edu/extension/irrigation/index.htm  Click the Play button after choosing a video.
