2024 Water Restrictions for City of Dallas

As we approach the new year, it’s important for residents of Dallas to be aware of the updated water restrictions that will be in effect for 2024. These measures are designed to conserve water, ensure sustainability, and support our community’s long-term water needs. Here’s a detailed guide to help you navigate these restrictions:

Outdoor Watering Schedule

Outdoor watering will now follow a twice-per-week schedule to optimize water use and maintain healthy landscapes. The specific days you can water depend on your address:

  • Even-Numbered Addresses (e.g., 1234 Main St.): Wednesdays and Saturdays
  • Odd-Numbered Addresses (e.g., 1235 Main St.): Thursdays and Sundays

Watering is only permitted between 6 PM and 10 AM to minimize evaporation during the hottest parts of the day.

Prohibited Water Uses

To further conserve water, the following uses are strictly prohibited:

  1. Watering During Rainfall: Outdoor irrigation is not allowed during periods of precipitation or within 48 hours after measurable rainfall.
  2. Runoff: Watering that causes runoff onto sidewalks, streets, or other non-irrigated areas is prohibited.
  3. Washing Driveways and Sidewalks: Using water to clean driveways, sidewalks, and other hard surfaces is not allowed, except for safety or sanitary reasons.
  4. Fountains and Water Features: Decorative fountains and water features must recirculate water to operate.

Allowed Exceptions

Certain activities are exempt from these restrictions to ensure minimal disruption to necessary activities:

  • Hand-Watering: Residents may hand-water plants and lawns using a hose with a shut-off nozzle at any time.
  • Drip Irrigation: Drip irrigation systems are exempt from the schedule and can be used any time.
  • New Landscaping: Newly planted landscapes may be watered more frequently for the first 30 days with a variance approved by the city.

Reporting Violations

Residents are encouraged to report any observed violations of the water restrictions. Reports can be made anonymously through the City of Dallas Water Conservation Hotline or the city’s online portal.

Tips for Efficient Water Use

  • Mulching: Use mulch around plants to retain soil moisture.
  • Soil Testing: Conduct soil tests to determine the specific water needs of your plants.
  • Leak Detection: Regularly check for leaks in your irrigation system and fix them promptly.
  • Rain Barrels: Consider using rain barrels to collect and use rainwater for your garden.


The City of Dallas appreciates your cooperation in adhering to these water restrictions. Together, we can ensure a sustainable water supply for current and future generations. For more information, please visit the City of Dallas Water Conservation website or contact the Water Conservation Office.
