Town of Flower Mound puts limitations on outdoor watering due to lack of rainfall and high temperatures

0

The town of Flower Mound is initiating Stage 1 water awareness as outlines in its Emergency Water Demand Management Plan.

This step is necessary due to the lack of meaningful rainfall and continued high temperatures, which have led to high water use in Flower Mound as well as other communities that receive water from the same wholesale providers, city officials said.

The current water demand is approaching a level that could cause a reduced delivery capacity for all or part of the transmission system, according to town officials.

All residents are requested to:
•Limit outdoor watering with automatic systems or hose-end sprinklers to no more than two times per week.
•Prohibit outdoor watering with automatic irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
•Restrict washing of any motor vehicle to the use of a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive shut-off nozzle for quick rinses. Vehicle washing may be done at any time on the immediate premises of a commercial car wash facility or commercial service station. Companies with an automated on-site vehicle washing facility may wash vehicles at any time.

Residents with questions can call 972-539-7378.
