Stage 3 Seasonal Watering Restrictions Extended Through April  

On February 26, 2015 the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) announced that the NTMWD Board of Directors voted to extend the Water Conservation and Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan Stage 3 seasonal watering restrictions through the month of April. Landscape watering with sprinklers or irrigation systems will continue to be limited to once every two weeks. Future actions on watering restrictions will depend on water levels in the NTMWD’s supply reservoirs.

Under Stage 3 seasonal watering restrictions landscape watering is limited to once every two weeks for sprinklers and/or irrigation systems at each service address and is prohibited from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A hand-held hose, dedicated zone using a drip irrigation system, or a soaker hose can be used for up to two hours on any day for foundations and new plantings (first year) of trees and shrubs.

Fairview residents and businesses should continue to water on their permitted day, as shown in the town’s Stage 3 Seasonal Zone Designation Map (see below). In addition to residents and businesses being permitted to water once every two weeks (effective 11/1/2014), all other watering restrictions will continue to be in effect and enforced. Approved watering weeks can be found in the March and April watering schedule below.  Approved weeks for watering are highlighted in green.


April 2015 Watering Schedule

 

As of March 5, 2015, Lavon Lake’s elevation was down 9.57 feet and Lake Jim Chapman, another critical NTMWD water source, was  down 8.31 feet. Compared to March 5, 2014, Lavon Lake’s elevation has increased 2.81 feet and Lake Jim Chapman has increased 4.61 feet.

"Our primary water supplies are below normal due to less than average rainfall and the persistent drought,” said Tom Kula, Executive Director of NTMWD. “Before we can lift water restrictions, our reservoirs need several months of average rainfall -- enough to significantly raise lake levels.” The NTMWD Board of Directors will reconsider the continuation of Stage 3 watering restrictions on a monthly basis, at least through May.

NTMWD has identified and is developing additional raw water supplies to meet the future water demands and population growth for the next 50 years. These water supplies and other required water management strategies are included in the 2012 State Water Plan.

Stage 3 Details

In addition to the current Stage 3 seasonal 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 seasonal watering restrictions that are approved from November 1st to March 31st.   

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 November 1st to March 31st. The day of the week you water will continue to be the day that was originally established for Stage 3 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 restrictions. CLICK HERE TO  SEE: icon Stage 3 Seasonal Zone Designation Map

Exceptions for Stage 3 watering restrictions are as follows:

  • Foundations, new landscaping, new plantings (first year) of shrubs, and trees may be watered for up to 2 hours on any day by a hand-held hose, a soaker hose, or a dedicated zone using a drip irrigation system.

  • Golf courses may water greens and tee boxes without restrictions.

  • Locations using other sources of water supply for irrigation may irrigate without restrictions.

  • Registered and properly functioning ET/Smart irrigation systems and drip irrigation systems may irrigate without restrictions.

  • Hosing of paved areas, buildings, or windows is allowed.

  • Operation of all ornamental fountains is allowed.

  • Existing swimming pools can be drained and refilled.

  • Hydroseeding, hydromulching and sprigging are allowed.

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.

Some excellent resources regarding smart landscaping and water conservation are:
