Winter Watering Schedule Extended Through April 2014!

On March 27, 2014 North Texas Municipal Water District Board of Directors voted and approved the extension of Stage 3 winter landscape watering schedule through the month of April with the possibility of monthly extensions.  Persistent drought conditions and limited water supplies initiated this action.  Garland Water Utilities customers are encouraged to limit lawn watering to one day every other week based on the recycling schedule in your area.  If you are unsure of your recycling schedule, please visit:  www.GarlandEnvironmentalWaste.com

Remember grass goes dormant in the winter and requires less watering.
