Outdoor Water Restrictions

The City of Mesquite announced support of the North Texas Municipal Water District’s extended Stage 3 water restrictions. The restrictions in Mesquite include limited outdoor watering by residents and businesses to one weekday every two weeks. Mesquite is focusing on public education and is asking the public to be efficient with their use of outdoor watering to help preserve the North Texas water supply.

Specific to the City of Mesquite:
• The extended water restrictions go into effect June 2. Details and Water Wise tips are available at www.cityofmesquite.com/utilities.
• Outdoor watering is not permitted any day from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
• Residents and businesses are asked to:
o Water lawns and landscaping only on weekdays. No outdoor watering on Saturdays or Sundays.
o Turn off the automatic setting on irrigation systems and manually turn on systems for use.
o Apply good judgment in choosing their one weekday watering day every two weeks and to be mindful of precipitation days in order to delay their irrigation plans.
o Use a hose to hand water shrubs and plants, and to use a soaker hose for foundations and trees. Hand watering of lawns is not permitted.

The City is supporting these extended outdoor watering restrictions by the following actions:
• Limited, strategic irrigation of ball fields that are in use to maintain safe play standards.
• Irrigation of passive parks, roadway medians and landscaping located at City facilities one weekday every two weeks.
• Delayed planting and irrigating of landscaping for the new Mesquite Heritage Trail.
• Instructions to contractors to use water trucks containing non-city water to irrigate required replacement sod on sidewalk repairs.

For more information, the public may call the City of Mesquite at 972-329-8533 or email [email protected]
