Water Restrictions Ahead For Dallas

DALLAS (AP) – The impact of the devastating drought is still being felt in North Texas, where watering restrictions continue.

Beginning Dec. 12, Dallas Water Utilities customers in Dallas and other cities will only be able to use sprinklers two days a week. Dallas City Manager Mary Suhm said stricter conditions, including watering only once a week, could be in place by summer.

DWU serves more than 2.3 million people in nearly two dozen cities.

Suhm said the only way DWU could avoid use restrictions in coming months is “if it starts raining now and rains through spring.”

The drought has depleted state reservoirs. The Texas summer was one of the hottest ever recorded.

    Why isn’t Dallas having to follow stage 3 watering restrictions like the rest of us in N. Texas?????? Water only two times a week? Oh what a horror! We only get to water 2 times a MONTH! Get with the program DALLAS!
