Aledo water restrictions begin June 3

Staff Reports

 As part of its contract to purchase Fort Worth water, the City of Aledo and its water customers must now abide by the water conservation standards set by the Tarrant Regional Water District, which will implement Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan on June 3.

The requirements for Stage 1 water restrictions are:

    • For residential customers, outdoor watering of lawn and landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems shall be limited to Saturdays and Wednesdays for customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8), and Sundays and Thursdays for water customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9). Non-residential customers, including businesses, parks and common areas, can water only on Tuesdays and Fridays. No watering is allowed on Mondays.

     • Outdoor watering with hose-end sprinklers is prohibited from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the assigned watering days.

     • Watering by hand-held hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any time. Residents and businesses are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two hours per day.

Other Stage 1 water restrictions include:

     • Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash.

     • No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection.

     • Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.

     • Encouraging restaurants to serve water only upon request.

     • Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance by the City of Aledo is required.

If the water shortage continues, the City of Aledo might be required to enact further stages to curtail the use of water and prevent water loss.
