2024 Water Restrictions in Prosper, TX

As we face another year of challenging weather patterns, it’s essential for all residents of Prosper, TX, to be aware of and comply with the 2024 water restrictions. These measures are critical to ensure that our community can manage its water resources sustainably and effectively.

Overview of Restrictions

To manage water usage, the following restrictions have been implemented:

  1. Watering Schedule:
    • Odd-Numbered Addresses: Residents with odd-numbered addresses can water their lawns on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
    • Even-Numbered Addresses: Residents with even-numbered addresses can water their lawns on Thursdays and Sundays.
    • Time Restrictions: Watering is only allowed between 6 PM and 10 AM to minimize evaporation and make the best use of our water resources.
  2. Prohibited Activities:
    • Washing Driveways and Sidewalks: Using potable water to wash down driveways, sidewalks, or any hard surfaces is prohibited unless it is for health and safety reasons.
    • Filling Swimming Pools: Filling new swimming pools, fountains, or ponds is not allowed during this period. Maintaining water levels in existing pools is permitted but should be done sparingly.
    • Vehicle Washing: Washing vehicles at home is restricted; however, commercial car washes that use recycled water are permitted.
  3. Exceptions:
    • New Lawns and Landscaping: Newly installed lawns and landscaping can be watered more frequently for the first 30 days after installation. After this period, regular restrictions apply.
    • Drip Irrigation and Hand Watering: These methods are allowed at any time but should be used responsibly to avoid wastage.

Enforcement and Penalties

Compliance with these restrictions is mandatory. The Town of Prosper will be monitoring water usage and enforcing these regulations. Violations may result in fines and, in extreme cases, disconnection of water services.

Tips for Conservation

To help residents adapt to these restrictions, here are some tips for conserving water:

    • Install Efficient Irrigation Systems: Use sprinkler systems with rain sensors and drip irrigation to minimize water wastage.
    • Check for Leaks: Regularly inspect your plumbing for leaks and fix them promptly to prevent water loss.
    • Utilize Mulch: Apply mulch around plants and trees to retain moisture and reduce the need for frequent watering.
    • Use Water-Efficient Fixtures: Consider installing water-efficient showerheads, faucets, and toilets to save water indoors.

Community Involvement

We encourage all residents to do their part in conserving water and to report any instances of non-compliance. Together, we can ensure that Prosper remains a sustainable and thriving community for years to come.
