Outdoor Watering Schedule
The City’s outdoor watering schedule is for all Round Rock water customers, including residents living in Municipal Utility Districts (MUDs) within the City’s ETJ.
Stage I Drought Restrictions went into effect June 29, 2022, AND ARE STILL IN EFFECT.
Drip irrigation and soaker hoses are not exempt from these rules.
Please note that you are not required to water your lawn; if you do water, it must be on your designated day(s).
The schedule is based on the last digit of your address:
Outdoor Watering Schedule
|Address Ends in||Stage 1 – Watering Days||Stage 2 – Watering Day|
|0||Monday / Thursday||Thursday|
|1||Wednesday / Saturday||Wednesday|
|2||Tuesday / Friday||Tuesday|
|3||Monday / Thursday||Monday|
|4 or 8||Sunday / Thursday||Sunday|
|5 or 9||Wednesday / Saturday||Saturday|
|6 or 7||Tuesday / Friday||Friday|
The City encourages residents to follow the watering schedule even when no drought restrictions are in effect. The best time to water is before 12 noon or after 7 p.m. The watering schedule is voluntary unless drought restrictions are in place.
