Homeowners Irrigation Testing Hours are Wednesday and Saturday 10am-2pm
Irrigation in River Plantation
Please note that the rain sensors are now in place and will turn off the pumps for a period of time after rain. We are working on improving the system, so sometimes it will be on despite the rain for maintenance work. If you see something that appears to be a problem, please report to manager@River-Plantation.com
New residents are often pleased when they learn that the HOA provides the water for their irrigation saving them a lot of money that would normally be charged by using county water. This is provided using funds paid for in your HOA dues. There is a fairly complex system including 3 large wells to distribute the water to not only each home, but also our common areas.
Our water usage as a community is governed by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SFWMD – often said as “Swift Mud”). They determine how often you can water. Each home should have a “tag” glued down at the curb in front of their home which gives the range of time to run the cycle. Additional watering puts our community in jeopardy of sanctions from SFWMD and therefore residents can be fined for excessive watering. If you are unsure of your watering time, contact the management company.
The system is scheduled to be on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 1pm (rain sensors and general repairs may impact this). If you have scheduled an irrigation company to your home, it is best to let us know so we can override the sensors or let you know of any known outages. Also, it they are scheduled for a time outside the testing window, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accomodate you.
If you are conducting a landscaping project or installing a new lawn, please email our management company and request additional watering. You will be given an exemption for the period of time for you new plantings.
