Free Irrigation Assessments
Out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of coronavirus, JEA has suspended all in-home assessments until further notice. We encourage all customers to practice social distancing and follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Did you know that 35 to 50 percent of water used for residential irrigation is wasted? Your irrigation system should be checked on a regular basis to ensure it is working properly:
- Inspect sprinkler heads. A broken one can waste 25,000 gallons of water in six months.
- Connect pipes and hoses. A small leak can waste up to 6,300 gallons of water a month.
- Select a WaterSense labeled irrigation controller.
- Direct spray to your landscape, not your sidewalk.
- Follow watering days as mandated by St. Johns River Water Management District. Learn about watering day restrictions
