Stage 2 of Coppell’s water conservation plan went into effect Aug. 7. This means residential and business customers are only allowed to irrigate on specified days, according to a news release.

The details

Residents and businesses with street addresses ending in even numbers are restricted to watering on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Those with odd numbered street addresses can irrigate Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Schools must conduct all watering of school sites, facilities and other areas Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.
