San Antonio - Pool Owners read this:  Your Responsibilities Under Stage 2 Water Restrictions

Stage 2

We all know this year's drought has been extreme.  And the San Antonio Water System and Edwards Aquifer have enacted Stage 2 Water restrictions.  Here they are:

* All Restrictions from Stage One remain in effect, unless added to or replaced by Stage Two rules.

* Landscape wateringwith an irrigation system, sprinkler or soaker hose is allowed only once a week from 3-8 a.m. and 8-10 p.m. on your designated watering day, as determined by your address.

* Watering with drip irrigation is permitted any day, but only between 3-8 a.m. and 8-10 p.m.

* Watering with a hand-held hose is allowed any time on any day.

* Use of fountains, waterfalls, or other aesthetic water features - outdoors or indoors - is prohibited, unless a variance has been granted for 100 percent non-potable water use.

* All non-public swimming pools must have a minimum of 25 percent of the surface area covered with evaporation screens when not in use.  Inflatable pool toys or floating decorations may be used for this purpose.

* Washing impervious cover such as parking lots, driveways, streets or sidewalks is prohibited.  Health and safety exceptions to this rule may be requested from SAWS in writing.

* Residential washing of vehiclesor other equipment is allowed only on assigned watering days and times.  A hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle or bucket of five gallons or less may be used.  Water should not be allowed to run into the street.

* The use of commercial car wash facilities is allowed any day.

* Operators of golf courses, athletic fields and parks must submit a conservation plan to SAWS.  For requirements, contact SAWS at 210-704-SAVE.  Golf courses, athletic fields and parks may not irrigate between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

* Hotels, motels and other lodging must offer and clearly notify guests of a "linen/towel change on request only" program.
