Under the City of Garland's new Water Conservation Plan, outdoor watering with sprinklers between the months of November and March is limited to one day a week with the flexibility of choosing which day of the week to water.
Please remember, our water schedule is subject to change dependent on the weather conditions and effectiveness of local water conservation measures. Any such changes will be posted on this website.
Conservation Plan Key Points
No outdoor irrigation between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
No outdoor watering with sprinklers or irrigation during a rain event
Newly-installed irrigation systems must be equipped with rain and freeze sensors
Watering with a hand-held hose using an automatic shutoff nozzle, soaker hose or drip irrigation is allowed at any time
Outdoor irrigation systems should be properly maintained and any leaks or broken sprinkler heads should be repaired
Under the current conservation measures:
Pool owners do not need a variance to fill or refill their pool
Newly planted landscape and/or sod can be watered by hand, soaker hose or drip irrigation at any time; therefore, no variance is needed
Newly planted landscape and/or sod watered by irrigation or sprinkler more than 1 time a week, will need to request a variance
