Southlake begins Stage 1 water restrictions

After a record-wet start to the year and despite a green light from the Tarrant Regional Water District to lift mandatory water restrictions earlier this year, residents in the City of Southlake are now back in Stage 1 water mode.

Restrictions kicked into effect Monday after water use over the weekend took a toll on the city's three water storage tanks.

Southlake prohibits lawn watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. year round, but moving into Stage 1 restrictions means residents must follow a twice-weekly outdoor watering scheduled based on their address.

Residents whose addresses end in an even number are only allowed to water on Wednesdays and Saturdays; and those whose addresses end in odd numbers must water Thursdays and Sundays. Landscaping at business, HOAs, parks and medians may occur only on Tuesdays and Fridays, and no watering is allowed Mondays, allowing the system to replenish itself.

Violators of the twice-weekly watering schedule are subject to fines as high as $2,000. As a reminder, the mandatory watering schedule applies only to sprinkler systems; residents may still water landscapes by hand any day.
