At its June 12-13 meetings, Conroe City Council will consider adopting an ordinance amending its irrigation restrictions to institute restrictions from May 1-Oct. 31.

What you need to know

The proposed ordinance that will come before council would impose irrigation restrictions between May 1-Oct. 31, with irrigation allowed only between the hours of 6 p.m.-10 a.m. during those months. When residents can operate irrigation systems would depend on their addresses.

  • Odd-numbered addresses would be able to water on Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Even-numbered addresses would be able to water on Wednesdays and Saturdays

Unless drought conditions exist, the proposed ordinance would not impose any irrigation restrictions between Nov. 1 and April 30, according to the proposed ordinance. Residents who or other entities that plan to re-sod or add new landscaping to their properties would be able to apply for a variance to the year-round watering requirements.

What else?

During City Council’s May 22 workshop meeting, City Engineer Chris Bogert said the irrigation in the summer affects the city’s water the most, and city staff are already receiving calls about low water pressure.

Stay tuned

City Council will discuss the proposed irrigation ordinance at its June 12 workshop meeting and consider adopting it at its June 13 regular meeting.
