Lawn Watering Guidelines City of Dallas 2015

Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate Dallas TREC# 0544069

Dallas area lake levels continue to rise.  What a gift that is for Dallas as we move into Spring.  Many homeowners made it through the winter without supplementing Mother Nature's showers.  Though we are fortunate to begin the year with record rainfalls, the City of Dallas is still requiring residents to follow a strict watering schedule from April 1 to October 31.

Lawn Watering Guidelines

  • Homeowners are welcome to use their automatic sprinkler systems and sprinklers attached to hoses twice a week.  Designated watering days are determined by address.
  • Homeowners with addresses ending in an even number (0,2,4,6,8)  water Sunday and Thursday.
  • Homeowners with addresses ending in an odd number (1,3,5,7,9)  water on Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Watering is allowed from 6:00 PM to 10:00 AM.
  • No sprinkling is allowed on Monday, Tuesday or Friday.
  • Hand watering and soaker hoses are allowed on any day of the week.
  • Contact the City of Dallas, if you have fresh sod or are planning to seed your lawn and apply for a variance.
  • Have your rain and freeze sensor checked to make sure it is working properly.

Fines are between $250 and $2000 per incident for violating the guidelines.  Ouch!

Hi Sharon -- in these days of drought in many states, water conservation, schedules and guidelines will become more prevalent.

Glad you've got some water this Spring - although, it's always a good idea to be mindful of water use in areas that frequently get dry weather for long periods.

Debb,  there are so many easy ways we can make a difference when it comes to water consumption.

WOW, those are some strict laws! I remember in California a time or two we couldn't water but nothing as strict as Dallas!

Sharon Parisi ~ in areas like Boston they don't know what to do with all the snow they have.... There must be some way to get all the unwanted snow and get to areas that are in need
