Today, May 1, 2009, starts another year of water restrictions in Austin, TX.
If your address is an ODD number, you can water on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
If your address is an EVEN number, you can water on Thursdays and Sundays.
Absolutely NO watering between the hours of 10am-7pm.
There are many fines the city can give out if you're caught breaking rules. The rules include watering on your specific days, but also if they see leaks in your equipment or watering your driveway or the street instead of your lawn, you cann be fined.
No, no one likes these restrictions, and no one likes brown yards, but they are necessary.
One exception is for new homes and new landscaping. If your lawn and landscaping is new, you are allowed to water until roots take place, but don't take advantage of this as we all need to share the water!
