Irrigation Schedule

The Fripp Island PSD is asking all of its water customers on Fripp Island to assist in lowering the water demand during periods of peak usage by observing the following 'NEW' landscape irrigation schedule.

  •  Customers with even-numbered addresses are asked to irrigate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
  • Those with odd-numbered addresses are asked to irrigate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • Mondays are reserved as “no irrigation days” to accommodate for the very high water demands that are typically experienced specifically on Mondays. 

Tourist and growing season puts higher demands on water supply during peak hours. These high demands can result in reduced water pressure in the distribution system and low levels in water storage tanks, both of which adversely affect the performances of fire hydrants and other fire suppression facilities.

We encourage our customers to use these NEW irrigation times, which allows our water storage tanks to fill and also smooths out peak daily water usage demands that put significant strains on the water system for everyone.

When adjusting your irrigation settings, please follow our guidelines to assure adequate water for all.  If your landscaper manages the settings, please ask them to use our guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter
