Daytime water restrictions lifted starting Oct. 1

Post Date:September 29, 2017

Starting Oct. 1, Lewisville water customers can resume daytime watering by automatic irrigation or hose-end sprinklers. This is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the months of May through September under the city’s Emergency Water Management plan.

Water customers still are limited to outdoor watering two days per week with irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers. Hand-watering, drip irrigation and soaker hoses are allowed on any day at any time.

Lewisville City Council amended the City's Emergency Water Management plan in 2014 to year-round mandatory outdoor watering restrictions for all customers. The plan assigned two days per week for water customers to use lawn and landscape irrigation.

  • Even-numbered residential addresses (ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8) or no street address are allowed to water only on Tuesday and Saturday.
  • Odd-numbered residential addresses (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) are allowed to water only on Wednesday and Sunday.
  • Commercial and multi-family customers are allowed to water year-round only on Monday and Thursday.

Violators can receive a citation. There are provisions for variances in certain circumstances, including:
  • Properties with irrigation systems that do not tap into the City water supply. This includes properties with their own water well, and properties that have an approved detention system that recycles the irrigation water.
  • Properties that are too large for all irrigation zones to be watered within the allowed time. Those properties can request a variance allowing them to spread their watering into additional days, but with each zone only being watered the approved number of times per week.
  • Properties that install new sod or landscaping. A variance can be requested to allow more frequent watering for a set period of time to allow the new plantings to become established.

    Lewisville purchases water from Dallas Water Utilities, and is required to adopt conservation provisions that are consistent with those applied in Dallas. Similar restrictions exist in Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington and many other cities in the region.
