SOUTHLAKE (CBSDFW.COM) - Add Southlake to the growing list of North Texas cities which are implementing water restrictions during this current heat wave. Southlake enacted Stage 1 water restrictions early on Monday, the 24th consecutive day of triple-digit temperatures.

An announcement on the City of Southlake’s website states that heavy water consumption led to the new restrictions. The announcement went on to say that “residents and businesses are asked to refrain from using water to irrigate landscaping until further notice.”

Normal water restrictions prevent lawn watering between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. each day. But the stricter Stage 1 water restrictions in Southlake mean that residents are assigned watering days.

Homeowners with an address ending in an even number are allowed to water their lawns on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Those homeowners with addresses ending in odd numbers can water their lawns on Thursdays and Sundays. Businesses are permitted to water their lawns on Tuesdays and Fridays. The regular watering hours still apply, and no watering is allowed on Mondays.
