BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Sprinkler heads for Cocoa Beach’s reclaimed water system are off, but when the water starts flowing on Saturday morning, it will be for a restricted number of houses.
Barbara Nawrocki and her Cocoa Beach neighbors on the city’s reclaimed water system have been limited to three days a week for a month, but the restrictions will get a little tighter on Saturday morning when the hours of use go from midnight to 10 a.m. to 2 to 10 a.m.
“The reclaimed treated demand is greater than what we’re getting into the plant,” said Bill Collings, chief operator of the water reclamation facility.
The city’s reclaimed water storage tanks are almost empty.
