Residents installing new grass or plants who need additional days to adequately water those plantings can request a variance online from Irving's Water Utilities Department.
Variances are granted for up to 30 days to establish new plantings. However, the city does not authorize additional irrigation for overseeding with cool season grasses for aesthetic purposes. In addition, even when a variance is granted, no watering should occur during precipitation or freezing temperatures.
For more information, contact Irrigation and Leak Technician Dennis Barton at (817) 948-7340 or via email.
