The City of Carrollton’s Public Works department is responsible for delivering clean, safe drinking water to all city water customers.  You can review the latest Annual Water Quality Report here.  Within the Public Works department is the Water Resource Management Office which is charged with developing programs that promote the efficient use of water throughout our community. Spend some time exploring the tools and tips provided here for ways to manage and conserve this most valuable resource.

Water Violations
Please call 972-466-3425 to report violations of current water use restrictions.

Outdoor Water Conservation
The key to any successful water conservation program is to address the most efficient way to water our landscape. Growing plants and turf in Texas can be a challenge, but with just a bit of education, efficiently watering your yard can put you way ahead of the pack. Here you will find great information on our clay soil, hardy Texas plants, smart irrigation practices and more! 

Indoor Water Conservation
Thanks to technology and water conservation plumbing codes, there are many great products available for retrofitting the fixtures in your home. Most are so easy that Do-It-Yourself is a snap.

Demonstration Gardens in Carrollton
The City of Carrollton is home to three beautiful native and adapted plant demonstration gardens. Our largest and most accessible garden is at Josey Ranch Lake between (and just behind) the Library and Senior Center at 1700 Keller Springs Road. With its wide pathways and generous lighting, anytime of day is a great time to wander through the garden!  We also have two smaller gardens located at the Don Cline pump station at 2150 Old Denton Road and Bobby Ballard Pump Station at 4750 N. Josey Lane.

Water Supply Updates and Restrictions 
Here you will find daily water supply updates from our water supplier, our current water use restrictions and the city ordinances that affect water use in the City of Carrollton.   

Events and Classes
The Water Resource Management office is dedicated to bringing informative events and classes on water efficiency to the residents and businesses of Carrollton. Our goal is to foster a sense of understanding and empowerment regarding the efficient use of water in our community. We truly have all the water we need but not a drop to waste! 

Retrofits and Rebates
The City of Carrollton offers programs that assist residential and commercial customers with water conserving devices and programs.
