Winter Watering Schedule Extended Through October 2014!

On May 22, 2014 North Texas Municipal Water District Board of Directors voted and approved the extension of the Stage 3 winter landscape watering schedule through the month of October.  Persistent drought conditions and limited water supplies initiated this action.  Lawn watering is limited to one day every other week based on the customer's Recycling Schedule.   If you are unsure of your recycling schedule, please visit:  www.GarlandEnvironmentalWaste.com

During hot and dry periods grass will go dormant.
When severe drought conditions are in effect a green lawn is not considered a necessity.
