According to the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce on March 9, 2020:
While Duval County residents are preparing to set their clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving Time, the City of Jacksonville’s Environmental Quality Division is reminding them to set lawn and landscape irrigation schedules to no more than two days per week. Designed to conserve Jacksonville’s water supply and reduce the amount of nutrients flowing into the St. Johns River, Chapter 366 of the City’s Ordinance Code limits watering to two days a week during Daylight Saving Time.
