Kings Point Irrigation Information:  There is no source for reclaimed water in Kings Point.  Irrigation water in Kings Point is pumped entirely from the Florida aquifer (ground water).  There are two main Irrigation Loop Systems, the Upper and the Lower, that supply irrigation entirely from deep wells. The Associations that are not serviced by the “Loops” have their own pumps.  Kings Point must adhere to County Watering Restrictions.  For water restrictions go to  https://www.hillsboroughcounty.org/en/residents/property-owners-and-renters/water-and-sewer/find-my-watering-days

Water Restriction Notice June 5th thru August 1st – Per SWFWMD (South West Florida Water Management District) one day a week water restrictions have been imposed throughout Hillsborough County*.  Previously, the watering schedule allowed you two days per week. When the new schedule was implemented, only your first current assigned watering day will be utilized (and permitted). For example: If your current two day a week schedule is Monday and Thursday, your new schedule is ONLY MONDAY. Hand watering and micro-irrigation of plants (other than lawns) can be done on any day at any time, If needed. An automatic shut-off device (i.e. water hose with automatic shut-off nozzle) must be used when hand watering to prevent the resident from being subjected to fines up to $500 from Hillsborough County water department. For Additional water restriction information, please visit: http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/conservation/restrictions/swfwmd.php  *Lawn water schedules (on the Hillsborough website) are not applicable to Kings Point.
