The Fort Worth City Council adopted the revised Conservation Plan on Tuesday, April 8.  It amended the conservation ordinance to include permanent, year-round no more than twice a week irrigation watering.  Designated watering days are the same as those under Stage 1 Restrictions. No watering 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. remains in effect year-round.

Customers can still water any time or day by hand, drip irrigation or soaker hoses. View the ordinance.
