The City of Irving’s ongoing water conservation plan, calls for year-round efficient irrigation measures. All residents and businesses are limited to irrigating only twice-per-week, according to scheduling for odd and 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 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 a 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.
  • Irrigation is prohibited on Monday, Thursday and Friday.

While research has shown that twice-per-week irrigation is an appropriate amount during warm months, residents are encouraged to visit to receive timely and specific information about how much irrigation is needed to supplement precipitation. Subscribers to will receive weekly emails with instructions on how much additional water is required for a healthy landscape.

Drought restrictions/irrigation guidelines are available at, as well as helpful hints about ways to conserve water and instructions for requesting an irrigation variance for newly installed plantings. All water conservation elements and irrigation ordinance limits will be enforced.
