Twice a Week Watering now Permanent
Effective April 8, Fort Worth's Conservation Ordinance now includes 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. is always in effect.
Customers can still water any time or any day by hand, drip irrigation or soaker hoses. View the ordinance.
