WOW!!!! Anyone in the forum affected by this restrictions?

Total area rainfall 3.5 inches below normal since October
Herald Staff Writer

MANATEE - With only days remaining in 2006, regional water authorities were only asking people to conserve water.

Later today, they're expected to require water conservation.

Southwest Florida Water Management District director David Moore is likely to accept staff recommendations to implement Phase II water use restrictions in the 16-county area that includes Manatee County during a 1:30 p.m. meeting in Brooksville today.

If the restrictions are approved, homeowners with lawn irrigation systems would be limited to irrigating lawns one day a week, either before 8 a.m., or after 6 p.m.

Since October, the Manatee-Sarasota area received almost 3.5 inches under its normal rainfall, bringing the 2006 deficit to more than 10 inches. Though January has seen a few rainy days, the shortage continues into 2007.
