This year many North Texans are looking for landscaping that will not only survive a drought, but also water restrictions.
More than a million North Texans will face harsh water rules this Spring. The North Texas Municipal Water District is preparing to extend Stage Three restrictions – that means many people can only water their lawns twice a month.
North Texas has received a respectable amount of rain this spring. While the water may have helped everyone’s yards look green and lush, it’s still not enough to recover from the drought.
“It kind of seems like a waste of water with the water restrictions. It doesn’t make any sense,” said Carol Birkett, a Collin County resident.
The North Texas Municipal Water District has voted to relax restrictions on residents in 13 area cities.
No landscape watering. No permits for new swimming pools. That could be the reality for thousands of North Texans in 2012.
