Time-of-Day Water Conservation Saves $$

To promote good water use habits, minimize water waste and preserve Irving’s water supply, the city enforces time-of-day irrigation restrictions. These limits make it a violation of city ordinance to water between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. from April 1 through Oct. 31.

Adhering to all restrictions in the irrigation ordinance is particularly important as the North Texas Region is experiencing drought conditions. In addition to time-of-day limitations, the city’s irrigation ordinance allows watering four days during the week.

Ways to minimize water consumption include:

  • Watering no more than twice per week from April through October (in warm weather) and only once per month if needed in winter (in cold weather).
  • Checking the irrigation system for leaks and malfunctions at least once each month
  • Requesting a “house call” from Irving’s Licensed Irrigator by visiting CityofIrving.org/Irrigation-Housecall
  • Repairing private property leaks. 
  • Attaching positive shutoff nozzles when hoses are used for hand watering or car washing.
  • Installing water-conserving landscaping including native and adaptive plants.
  • Using water-conserving plumbing fixtures at residences and businesses.
  • Purchasing water-conserving appliances.
  • Registering at WaterMyYard.org for a weekly message about how much to irrigate.
