The following news release was provided by the county of Pinellas: 

Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure, in collaboration with Tampa Bay Water, has scheduled construction to upgrade part of the public water supply system, which will require a shutdown of the main pipeline providing water to Pinellas County.


The construction is expected to take 10 days to complete and is tentatively scheduled to begin in early February. During this construction period, Tampa Bay Water along with the city of St. Petersburg will provide Pinellas County with sufficient water supply to meet the average daily water demands.


To plan for this event, citizens should refrain from scheduling excessive water use activities during the month of February such as pressure washing, installing new sod/landscaping, and filling pools.


Citizens are also reminded that Pinellas County is under a Phase II Water Shortage Order limiting lawn irrigation to one day per week on an assigned day based on house address.
