TAMPA (FOX 13) -

New watering restrictions begin Wednesday for a lot of folks in the Tampa Bay area.

People in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties can only water the lawn and wash the car once a week.

Here is the schedule the city issued:

* Addresses ending in 0 or 1 may irrigate on Mondays

* Addresses ending in 2 or 3 may irrigate on Tuesdays

* Addresses ending in 4 or 5 may irrigate on Wednesdays

* Addresses ending in 6 or 7 may irrigate on Thursdays

* Addresses ending in 8 or 9 may irrigate on Fridays

You can hand water any day, but have to have it done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District says rainfall is way below normal. They say the restrictions are necessary to conserve.
