Current Watering Restrictions - Staying the Course with Water Conservation

Finally, most of the lakes in North Texas are full. After 5 long years of skimpy rainfall, it’s nice to have water levels back to normal but it’s still very important to conserve.

The current watering restrictions are governed by the city's water conservation plan.  

1) Watering is not allowed between the hours of 10am and 6pm to minimize water loss from evaporation.

2) Water run-off in excess of 50 feet from the property line is prohibited.

All water users in the City of Carrollton are asked to continue to voluntarily use the twice per week watering schedule.

Here are some good tips to get the most out of the water you apply to your yard.  

1) water very early in the morning to prevent excess evaporation, 2) use the cycle/soak method of irrigation to get the water deep into the soil and 3) raise the height of your lawn mower to protect your grass roots from sunburn.  To learn more about cycle/soak irrigation click on the Outdoor Water Conservation tab.

Also, be sure to check your irrigation system each year to make sure it’s working properly. Residents can take advantage of Carrollton’s “Save Water by the Yard” program which offers free irrigation system inspections by a local licensed irrigator. To schedule an inspection, call 972 466-3120.
