2014 Fairview Citizen Survey Results

The results of the 2014 Fairview Citizen Survey were recently presented at the April 1st Town Council meeting. The purpose of the survey was to seek citizen opinions and priorities, determine satisfaction levels, and to generate ideas on how to move our town forward. While brief and easy to complete, the survey covered a broad range of topics, from roads and code enforcement to leisure services and communication efforts. Based on total households that received the survey, a collection rate of 28% was calculated. The Town Council and town staff would like to thank all Fairview residents that took time to contribute to this effort. To access the results of the 2014 Fairview Citizen Survey click here.

Stage 3 Watering Restrictions Update For August 2014

(see watering schedule for July and August 2014 below)

The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) Board of Directors approved the continuation of landscape watering being limited to once every two weeks for sprinklers and/or irrigation systems at each service address during the month of August. Landscape watering is prohibited from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from April 1st to October 31st. Soaker hoses and drip irrigation systems can continue to be used for up to two-hours per day for foundations and trees. 

Under the current Stage 3 water restrictions, cities/towns are asked to work to achieve a 10% reduction. The NTMWD stated in a recent news release that "Our customers can help us conserve our water supplies by using rain sensors or temporarily turning off automatic sprinkler systems during periods of rainfall." NTMWD, in partnership with Texas A&M Agrilife Extension is offering residential and business water customers a new tool, Water My Yard, that computes proper landscape watering needs based on recent weather conditions. Water My Yard, found at http://watermyyard.org takes into account the type of irrigation system and weather conditions. By signing up for a weekly email, residential and business water customers receive a notification of how long to run their irrigation system.

In a May 2014 NTMWD news release, Thomas Kula, Executive Director of NTMWD said "It's important to preserve the water supply to maintain adequate supplies for public health, sanitation, and firefighting capabilities." Kula also added that, "No one can predict when the drought will ease, and we must all take the correct measures in conserving our water."

Stage 3 Details

In addition to the current Stage 3 watering restrictions, the Town will continue to implement restrictions listed in Stages 1 and 2. Below you will find more details related to the current Stage 3 watering restrictions that are approved for August 2014.  

Landscape watering with sprinklers and/or irrigation systems at each service address is limited to once every two weeks, and is prohibited from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from April 1st to October 31st. Please see the August 2014 Stage 3 Watering Schedule below, which shows the weeks approved for watering. Approved weeks for watering are highlighted in green. The day of the week you water will continue to be the day that was originally established for Stage 3 seasonal watering restrictions.This system is based on being located in one of four zones that the town has been broken into for watering purposes. The zone you’re in determines which day watering is allowed. For example, if you live in Zone 3 you can only water on Wednesday during Stage 3 seasonal restrictions. CLICK HERE TO  SEE: Stage 3 Seasonal Zone Designation Map

Stage 3 Watering Restriction Documents:

There are many other opportunities to help conserve water. Below are a variety of other tips that you might find helpful:

  • Repair leaks, running toilets, dripping faucets, and broken sprinkler heads.
  • Water in the morning or evening when the temperatures are cooler.
  • Plant native, drought tolerant plants that require less water.
  • Adjust your lawn mower to at least one notch. A taller lawn holds more moisture.
  • Water only when plants look like they need it. Most plants die from over-watering.
