Once a Week Lawn Watering
Extended Through November 2014!
On November 3, 2014 Garland City Council voted to extend once a week watering through November. Garland residents will be allowed to water their lawns with sprinklers or irrigation systems one day a week on their garbage collection day. Allowing once a week lawn watering in through November will improve circulation and help maintain the required chlorine residuals. Garland Water Utilities will continue to monitor water quality within its system and perform hydrant flushing only when necessary.
