Water Restrictions

Water Conservation During Drought Relies Heavily on Outdoor Water Restrictions

Houston Water Restrictions Drought PreparedDid you know that the average residential household spends *30% of their water use* on outdoor needs? And in Texas, it can go as high as 40% if the conditions are right and restrictions are not in place. Since outdoor water usage is not always necessary, outdoor water restrictions are the best method for defending ourselves during drought.

Targeting outdoor water use with restrictions not only saves water but still keeps your lawn and garden healthy. "Texas Living Waters reports" that homeowners *over-water by as much as 2-3 times the amount* needed. With water restrictions in place, water is conserved, plants survive, and residents are encouraged (through stiff penalties) to comply. If your area faces water restrictions see our list below to be sure you are complying:

*Murphy County*

Two Days Per Week Between 6 pm and 10 am the following day. No watering during the middle of the day.

  • Residential street addresses ending in odd numbers water on Mondays and Thursdays.
