The City of Irving reminds residents of the ongoing water conservation plan, which calls for year-round efficient irrigation measures. These measures allow the city's water storage tanks to refill efficiently and quickly, providing consistent service for all residents, businesses and visitors.
All residents and businesses are limited to irrigating only twice-per-week, according to scheduling for odd/even addresses:
- Even numbered addresses (those ending in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8) may water on Tuesday and Saturday.
- Odd numbered addresses (those ending in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) may water on Wednesday and Sunday.
- No watering allowed Monday, Thursday and Friday.
- No irrigation is allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day from April 1-Oct. 31.
- Use of free-flowing hoses is prohibited; hoses must have attached positive shutoff nozzle and be under the control of a person when in use.
- All private property leaks must be repaired in a timely manner.
Report violations to Water Utilities at (972) 721-2281. Violations can result in a fine of up to $2,000.
Tips from the Pros

Subscribers to WaterMyYard.org will receive weekly emails with instructions on how much additional water is required for a healthy landscape.
Drought restrictions/irrigation guidelines are available at on the Water Utilities website, as well as helpful hints about ways to conserve water and instructions for requesting an irrigation variance for newly installed grass. All water conservation elements and irrigation ordinance limits will be enforced. For more information, visit CityofIrving.org/Water-Utilities.
