Water restrictions reduced

WEATHERFORD — WEATHERFORD — Gradual improvements at the water plant are allowing the City of Weatherford to move from Stage 3 to Stage 2 of the drought contingency plan. However, it is crucial that all City of Weatherford water customers continue to conserve water.

Stage 2 of the plan maintains most of the same restrictions with the exception of allowing for limited use of hose-end sprinkler’s and automatic sprinkler systems. To assist in reducing demands, governmental entities are being placed on a separate schedule.

Stage 2 response requires residents and businesses to adhere to the following water restrictions:

- Vehicle washing may be done at any time on the immediate premises of a commercial car wash or commercial service station.

- Use of water to fill, refill or add to any indoor or outdoor swimming pool, wading pool or jacuzzi-type is prohibited except on designated watering days.

- Operation of any ornamental fountain or pond for aesthetic or scenic purposes is prohibited.

- Use of water from hydrants is limited to construction purposes with special permit issued by Weatherford Utilities.

- The use of hose-end sprinklers and automatic sprinkler systems are limited to designated watering days and times. Irrigation of landscaped areas shall be limited to designated watering days between the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight and midnight to 10 a.m. and shall be by means of hand-held hoses or drip irrigation.

Designated watering days are as follows:

- Sundays and Thursdays for customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8).

- Saturdays and Wednesdays for customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9).

Stage 3 of the drought contingency plan will be in effect until further notice. Violators are subject to a misdemeanor charge, fines of up to $500 and possible loss of water service.
