The City of Arlington's conservation program is part of a regional effort to help plan for future water supply needs and meet the requirements of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Texas Water Development Board. With reservoir levels decreasing and water capacity below normal, the City of Arlington is asking residents and businesses to comply with city ordinances and use water wisely. For more information about this message, send us an e-mail at water@arlingtontx.gov or call 817-459-6600.  Together, we can ensure a reliable water supply for future generations. 

DROUGHT STATUS: NEAR NORMAL

The City of Arlington implemented Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency and Emergency Water Management Plan on Monday, June 3, 2013, in response to Tarrant Regional Water District’s (TRWD) decision to begin watering restrictions.  The goal of Stage 1 drought restrictions is to save 5% of expected water consumption through savings from outdoor irrigation.  A maximum twice per week watering schedule is in effect and full details can be found here: Arlington Drought Information

THE LAWN WHISPERER

You can have a beautiful, healthy lawn and still save water. When you really listen to your lawn, it can tell you when it needs water and when it doesn't. Visit the Lawn Whisperer's Facebook page and learn how to talk to your lawn, too.

WATERING NIXED 10 A.M. TO 6 P.M. YEAR-ROUND

Except for hand watering and the use of soaker hoses, it shall be unlawful for any person to irrigate, water, or cause or permit the irrigation or watering of any lawn or landscape located on premises owned, leased, or managed by that person between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

DRIP-IRRIGATED PLANTS SAVE WATER

Studies have established that a square foot of grass needs 72 gal/year (272.5 L/yr) to survive while a drip-irrigated plant suited to the climate needs only 17 gal/yr (64 L/yr), a savings of 55 gal/yr (208 L/yr) for each square foot of grass sod replaced. Learn more

IRRIGATION RULES

As mandated by the Texas Legislature, the City of Arlington recently approved Ordinance 08-108 creating a landscape irrigation program that includes permitting, minimum design standards, and inspections for all new and expanded lawn irrigation systems. Learn more
