As the old saying goes, “Spring forward, Fall back.” It serves to remind us to turn our clocks ahead in the Spring and back in the fall. This year's daylight-saving time resumes Sunday, March 14, 2021.


According to a release from Volusia County, this is also when the County’s lawn watering schedule changes. If needed, residents may water their lawns twice a week until standard time resumes November 7, when the once-a-week schedule will return.


Odd-numbered addresses may water Wednesdays and Saturdays, and even-numbered addresses may water Thursdays and Sundays. 


Businesses may water Tuesdays and Fridays. Each zone of an individual's irrigation system may be watered no more than one hour, or equal to three-quarters of an inch of water a day. Watering is not authorized between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.


Watering restrictions apply to all county residents, including those who live inside city limits. They cover


the city and county water, private wells and pumps, but do not include reclaimed water. 


Unincorporated residents who violate the water conservation ordinance may obtain a fine of up to $500. 


The time change also is a reminder to change the batteries in smoke alarms. Smoke alarms can save lives if they are functioning correctly.


Volusia County Fire Rescue offers free smoke alarms to residents in unincorporated areas of Volusia County.
