Winter Watering Guidelines in effect November 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022

Please refer to the City of Plano website for additional information regarding Water Conservation and Guidlines.

The following is a message from the City of Plano:

Plano residents and businesses are asked to only water a maximum of once per week from November 1 to March 31.

ONCE PER WEEK WATERING SCHEDULE

LAST DIGITS OF ADDRESS WATERING DAY

ODD NUMBERS (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) TUESDAYS

EVEN NUMBERS (2, 4, 6, 8, 0) THURSDAYS

  • Turn off automatic sprinklers now that cooler weather has arrived. Most grasses go dormant until spring, which reduces your lawn’s need for water. Subscribe to WaterMyYard.org for customized weekly watering recommendations.

  • If watering is needed, set your sprinklers to run when the temperature is warmer, between 10 am and 6 pm, to avoid icing of streets and sidewalks.

  • Planting cool season grasses, such as rye or fescue, is discouraged. These grasses require extra water during winter.

  • Excessive water runoff and watering during rain, ice or snow is prohibited.

Visit plano.gov/outdoorwateruse for more ways to save water outdoors.

*As HOA watering involves watering of their common areas and in many cases the City of Plano right of way (which has no address), all HOA watering and addresses ending in zero follow an EVEN address watering schedule.
