Reclaimed Irrigation Water

Protect your lakes & Sarasota Bay from harmful algae blooms. If your community uses reclaimed water, you are fertilizing the grass every time you water the lawn. Reclaimed water contains high quantities of nitrogen. Consequently, less fertilizer should be applied throughout the year. Save money & protect the bay by using this guide to calculate the new, adjusted fertilizer rate.

 

Reclaimed water is used for irrigation throughout the county, especially in newer neighborhoods. This water contains a lot of nitrogen. Test reclaimed water for nitrogen to ensure you know how much nitrogen applied to your lawn.
