Each year, the City of Carrollton’s Water Conservation Plan calls for restrictions on time-of-day watering beginning April 1. The use of a permanently installed automatic irrigation system is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. from April 1 through October 31. Time-of-day restrictions conserve water by minimizing evaporation and wind drift during the warmest hours of spring and summer days. This allows more water to penetrate deep into the soil which promotes healthier roots for plants and turf grass.
Protect your landscape and your wallet by watering early in the morning (well before sunrise) and deeply by breaking long watering cycles into two or three shorter cycles. You can find more detailed instructions about outdoor watering at cityofcarrollton.com/water.
