Umatilla, FL to Hold Second Reading of Fertilizer Ordinance
The Council will hold a discussion about a fertilizer ordinance. At a recent Lake County League of Cities luncheon a program was presented on the county’s adoption of an enhanced fertilizer ordinance which changed to their Land Development Regulations pertaining to fertilizers. Changes included:  Phosphorous & Nitrogen Summer Application Ban which bans application of phosphorous & nitrogen from June through September to address increased runoff potential during the rainy season  Increasing the application setback from water bodies from 10’ to 15’ to provide additional buffer for fertilizer runoff and a voluntary low maintenance zone extended to 15’  Slow release Nitrogen content requirement for 50% slow release content to address leaching potential The city adopted Florida Friendly Landscaping requirements some years back. The revision by the county has applied more stringent requirements.
