Fort Worth Water Restrictions

The City of Fort Worth City Council adopted a Water Conservation Ordinance. These changes include outdoor watering restrictions to reduce water waste and encourage efficient water use.

The ordinance is effective June-September 30.

There can’t be any landscape watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., with the exception of watering by hand or with soaker hoses.
Offenses include:

  • A substantial amount of water falling on impervious areas (i.e. sidewalk or street) instead of a lawn or landscape.
  • Watering during any form of precipitation.
  • Irrigation system has broken or missing sprinkler heads.

Rain and freeze sensors are required on all irrigation systems installed on or after June 1, 2007.

If you violate these terms, you could be fined up to $2,000 for each offense.

If you have any irrigation problems you need corrected, please give us a call and avoid an unnecessary fine.
