Twice-A-Week Landscape Watering is Now Permanent in Southlake
On April 15, 2014 the Southlake City Council voted to approve the 2014 Water Conservation Plan, which makes twice per week landscape watering permanent in Southlake. State law requires that cities larger than 3,300 adopt a Water Conservation Plan and Drought Contingency Plan and submit them to the Texas Water Development Board every five years. At the request of the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD), the City of Fort Worth has added a maximum of twice per week landscape watering to their water conservation plan and requires wholesale customer cities, including Southlake, to adopt the same measures.
Public Works Director Bob Price notes, “Chapter 288 of the Texas Administrative Code requires that as a wholesale water customer of the City of Fort Worth we share the conservation measures imposed by their plan and that our plan meets or exceeds the measures of their plan” (read more).
