Water Restrictions in Effect

(Reprinted from Fort Worth City Website)

Fort Worth will implement Stage 1 of its Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan effective Monday, August 29, 2011. Once Stage 1 has been initiated, these will be the requirements: 

During Stage 1, landscape watering is limited to the following twice per week schedule. Watering with a soaker hose, drip irrigation or by hand is allowed at any time.

Fort Worth Water Restrictions 

The twice a week watering schedule includes Fort Worth’s year-round restrictions of no watering between 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., no watering hard surfaces, no watering during precipitation and no watering with missing or broken sprinkler heads.


  • Foundations may be watered up to two hours on any day using a handheld hose, soaker hose or drip irrigation system placed within 24-inches of the foundation.
  • Establishing new turf is discouraged. If hydromulch, grass sod, or grass seed has been installed, watering is allowed for the first 30 days to establish roots. After that, the above schedule applies. This does not include overseeding.
  • All users are encouraged to reduce the frequency of draining and refilling swimming pools.
  • Washing of any motorized vehicle is limited to a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive-pressure shutoff nozzle for quick rinses. Vehicle washing may be done at any time on the premises of a commercial car wash or commercial service station.
  • Supervised testing, repair or maintenance of a sprinkler system is an exception to allow water to run more than 50 feet away from the property.

Violations will receive an initial warning. Repeat offenses will be subject to an irrigation system lock-out which carries an administrative fee. Subsequent offenses may be issued a citation, with a fine of up to $2,000 per day. Each day is considered a separate violation.
