2024 Water Restrictions for Blue Mound, TX

Ensuring Sustainable Water Usage for Our Community

As we enter the year 2024, the City of Blue Mound, TX is implementing new water restrictions to protect our local water supply and mitigate the effects of ongoing drought conditions. These guidelines are designed to promote both environmental and economic sustainability, ensuring that our essential water needs are met and that our community remains resilient for the long term.

Key Restrictions and Guidelines

Outdoor Watering and Irrigation

  • Watering Days: Residents and businesses are permitted to water outdoor landscapes only twice a week. Addresses ending in even numbers may water on Tuesdays and Saturdays, while odd-numbered addresses may water on Wednesdays and Sundays.
  • Time of Day: Outdoor watering is restricted to the hours between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM, and then again from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM to minimize evaporation and maximize absorption.
  • Duration: Limit each watering session to no more than 30 minutes per zone to prevent excessive use.
  • Irrigation Systems: Ensure all sprinkler systems are properly maintained to avoid leaks and over-spraying onto non-landscaped areas such as sidewalks and driveways.

Car Washing

  • At Home: Car washing at home is allowed on designated watering days using a bucket or a hose with a shut-off nozzle.
  • Commercial Car Washes: Encourage the use of commercial car wash facilities that recycle water.

Pools and Spas

  • Filling: Filling of new swimming pools, hot tubs, and spas is prohibited unless it’s for a newly constructed pool or spa that requires initial filling for structural integrity.
  • Maintenance: Existing pools and spas may operate as usual, provided they are properly covered when not in use to reduce water evaporation.

Lawn and Garden Care

  • New Lawns: The installation of new lawns or landscaping is discouraged. If necessary, new plantings should use drought-resistant varieties and adhere to the same watering restrictions as established lawns.
  • Mulching: Use mulch around plants, trees, and shrubs to retain moisture and reduce the need for watering.

Water Waste Management

  • Leaks and Repairs: All leaks must be repaired within 48 hours of detection. Residents are encouraged to regularly check their plumbing and irrigation systems for leaks.
  • Runoff: Prevent water runoff from property by ensuring efficient use of water and repairing any broken or misaligned sprinklers.

Educational Programs and Resources

The City of Blue Mound is committed to helping residents and businesses adapt to these new water restrictions. We will be offering workshops on water conservation techniques, and providing resources on drought-resistant landscaping and efficient irrigation practices. Stay tuned for upcoming events and educational materials that will help you make the most of our precious water resources.

Enforcement and Penalties

To ensure compliance with these restrictions, the City will be conducting regular inspections and monitoring water usage. Non-compliance may result in warnings, fines, or other penalties as outlined in the city’s water conservation ordinance.
