The permanent water schedule will continue according to the 2019 Water Conservation Plan. City Council recently reviewed the first reading of the new plan at the April 2 City Council meeting.
Under the water conservation plan, Southlake Water Utilities Customers can operate their landscape irrigation systems at least twice per week any time before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m.
There is no cost to adopt this plan and it includes other cost savings methods as well, such as reducing or delaying the need for new supplies, pipeline delivery, capacity improvements and the use of new cellular technology which allows users to review their water consumption 24/7 and detect for leaks inside the home through an EyeOnWater App.
Residents can also take advantage of the City’s W.I.S.E. Guys Program, where a licensed irrigator will be assigned to conduct a free irrigation evaluation to determine rather or not there are leaks outside of the home.
The Water Conservation Plan is required by the Texas Administrative Code. The plan is updated and resubmitted on a five-year cycle. Since the last updated was conducted in April 2014, the next update falls this year on May 1.
