I know its killing me too....I had to take my car to a car wash where I think they used raw sewage to wash my car because it smelled horrible! Not to mention they put about 10 gallons of tire shine on and my car was black again after driving home =(

Yes, but that water is for drowning and floods only. You can't use it for drinking or washing cars or watering the lawn or washing your clothes or doing the dishes.

I’ve got some bad news for everyone in South Florida. Being an urban planner for the city of Fort Lauderdale, I get inundated with county and city memos every day. I have a memo here that states that the South Florida Water Management District has enacted mandatory Phase III Water Restrictions.

Phase III mandatory water use restrictions limit outdoor lawn watering and car washing to one day a week:
• Homes with an odd number address can water their lawns on Saturdays from 4 am to 8 am.
• Homes with an even number address or no address can water their lawns on Sundays from 4 am to 8 am.
• Hand watering using a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle is permitted from 5 pm to 7 pm on lawn-watering days


There has been talk amongst the internal departments that it is getting so bad that it may even go to phase 4. Let's hope not!

My understanding is that Broward County has never enacted Phase III before this year. This just goes to show you how bad the situation is right now. Phase IV is the last stage of the four-phase water control plan. With Phase IV, watering of lawns is limited to one hour, one day a week. You probably wont even legally be allowed to wash your car if it goes to Phase IV. In terms of who is most likely to be cited for offenses, I found this:

So far, Palm Beach County has issued 2,616 citations; Broward County, 384; and Miami-Dade County, 60.
