Once a Week Lawn Watering Through October 2014!

On August 28, 2014 North Texas Municipal Water District Board of Directors voted to allow once a week watering through October 2014.  Effective September 1, 2014 Garland residents will be allowed to water their lawns with sprinklers or irrigation systems one day a week.  Their designated watering day is the same as their garbage collection day.   Allowing once a week lawn watering in September and October 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.  If you are unsure of your garbage collection schedule, please visit:  www.GarlandEnvironmentalWaste.com
