As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure a sustainable water supply for Arlington, we are implementing new water restrictions in 2024. These measures are essential to conserve water and manage our resources efficiently. This guide provides detailed information on the restrictions and how they affect Arlington residents, property owners, and local businesses.

Key Restrictions

Outdoor Watering

  • Allowed Days: Outdoor watering with sprinklers or irrigation systems is permitted only twice a week.
  • Residential Properties: Even-numbered addresses can water on Wednesdays and Saturdays; odd-numbered addresses on Thursdays and Sundays.
  • Commercial Properties: Watering is allowed on Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • Prohibited Times: Watering is not allowed between 10 AM and 6 PM to minimize evaporation.
  • Hand Watering: Allowed any day, but only with a handheld hose, drip irrigation, or soaker hose. The same time restriction of 10 AM to 6 PM applies.

Washing Vehicles

  • At Home: Residents can wash vehicles at home only with a handheld hose equipped with a shutoff nozzle or a bucket.
  • Commercial Car Washes: No restrictions, but using local car washes that recycle water is encouraged.

Pools and Fountains

New Landscaping

  • Exemptions: New landscaping and sod may be watered more frequently for the first 30 days after installation, but must comply with time restrictions (10 AM – 6 PM).

Tips for Water Conservation

  • Efficient Irrigation: Use drip irrigation systems and soaker hoses to reduce runoff and direct water to plant roots.
  • Smart Controllers: Install weather-based irrigation controllers to adjust watering schedules based on real-time weather data.
  • Mulching: Apply mulch to garden beds to retain soil moisture and reduce evaporation.
  • Native Plants: Opt for drought-tolerant native plants that require less water and are better adapted to local climate conditions.

Compliance and Enforcement

  • Penalties: Non-compliance with the water restrictions can result in fines. First-time offenders will receive a warning, followed by fines for subsequent violations.
  • Reporting Violations: Residents can report violations by contacting the Arlington Water Utilities Department at 817-459-5900 or using the city’s online service portal.

Community Involvement

  • Workshops and Programs: The city offers workshops on water-efficient landscaping and irrigation practices. Visit website for upcoming dates and registration information.
