Water levels cannot be predicted from one year to the next and we all need to make an effort to conserve water. After the drought of 2006, Euless officials realized that we need to protect this precious resource by enacting measures that make sense for Euless residents.
Euless residents now fall under a water conservation ordinance that prohibits watering outdoors from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all year. The rules will apply to City water customers who use automatic and non-automatic irrigation systems and garden hoseattached sprinklers to water their lawns.
Watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. is an inefficient method of maintaining yards. Water from sprinklers and irrigations systems is lost by evaporation due to heat and wind. In addition, daylight watering, as well as domestic use, places additional demands on the water treatment plant.
The ordinance does provide for watering home foundations, lawns and new landscape plantings by handheld hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose. For more information please call 817-685-1400. Thank you for your help in conserving our most precious resource.
