Outdoor Watering Schedule
The City’s outdoor watering schedule is based on the last number of your address and are spread out over seven days rather than six to better balance water usage throughout the week.
The best time to water is before noon or after 7 p.m. The watering schedule is voluntary unless drought restrictions are in place; however, the City recommends you follow the schedule even when no drought restrictions are in effect.
Voluntary Conservation Measures are currently enacted. We have been tasked by the Brazos River Authority to reduce consumption by 5%, due to declining lake levels and worsening drought conditions.
