The graphic provided shows where the Tarrant Regional Water District, Dallas Water Utilities, and the North Texas Municipal Water District supply levels are as of today.

Reservoir Levels

 

Tarrant Regional Water District is currently under a “Water Watch”, which provides for Stage One restrictions – limited twice a week outdoor watering and no watering from 10am to 6pm.

Dallas Water utilities is also (permanently) limiting outdoor watering to twice a week in its jurisdiction and prohibiting watering from 10a to 6pm.

North Texas Regional Water District recently extended Stage Three water restrictions for its residents and businesses. This means watering lawns only once every two weeks.

 

The goal for all of these suppliers is to reduce water usage for conservation purposes.  The growing population along with the current drought are zapping reservoir levels all across the state.  The summer months can accelerate the depletion of our lakes, with rapid evaporation.  With no signs that the drought will end in the next few months, conserving water is critical.
