North Texas Faces Water Shortage
The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) Board of Directors voted May 29 to return to Stage 2 of their emergency response plan for drought conditions. Consumers with sprinkler or irrigation systems may water their lawns and landscapes no more than two days per week, as needed, from June through September
Lake Texoma, 28 percent of the NTMWD water supply, remains offline due to an infestation of zebra mussels. NTMWD does not expect to resume pumping water from Texoma until a pipeline extension is complete after the summer of 2013.
Under the restrictions, sprinkler or irrigation systems are prohibited from operating between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm.
Addresses in Carson City that end in odd numbers are authorized to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Even numbers get Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Carson City Water Restrictions In Effect
Water restrictions in Carson City, Nevada, went into effect June 1, and residents are asked to adhere to the guidelines from the Carson City Public Works Department.
From June 1 through September 30, watering is not allowed between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. No one is allowed to water on Mondays, and days when watering is permitted are determined by even or odd addresses.
Exemptions are available for Carson City licensed commercial gardeners or commercial caretakers who are on site while watering is taking place, and for some new plantings or gardens with approval of an irrigation plan.
