Water Conservation

Water Conservation Measures

Under the City of Garland's new Water Conservation Plan, watering lawns with sprinklers between the months of April and October is limited to two days a week with the flexibility of choosing which day of the week to water.

Please remember, our water schedule is subject to change dependent on the weather conditions and effectiveness of local water conservation measures. Any such changes will be posted on this website.

Conservation Plan Key Points

  • No outdoor irrigation between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • No outdoor watering with sprinklers or irrigation during a rain event
  • Newly-installed irrigation systems must be equipped with rain and freeze sensors
  • Watering with a hand-held hose using an automatic shutoff nozzle, soaker hose or drip irrigation is allowed at any time
  • Outdoor irrigation systems should be properly maintained and any leaks or broken sprinkler heads should be repaired

Water Variances

Under the current conservation measures:

  • Pool owners do not need a variance to fill or refill their pool
  • Newly planted landscape and/or sod can be watered by hand, soaker hose or drip irrigation at any time; therefore, no variance is needed
  • Newly planted landscape and/or sod watered by irrigation or sprinkler more than 2 times a week, will need to request a variance
