WATER RESTRICTION

SUMMERTIME WATERING RESTRICTION

 

WATER SYSTEM: DUCHANE CHATEAUX ADDITION

TX ID 1840100

 

8,000 GALLONS A MONTH PER HOUSHOLD

 

EVEN WITH THE NEW WATER PLANT WE DO NOT HAVE AN UNLIMITED WATER SUPPLY.  THE WATER WELLS PRODUCE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF WATER AND THE WATER LINES CAN ONLY DELIVER A LIMITED AMOUNT OF WATER.

 

MOST PEOPLE ARE REASONABLE WHEN IT COMES TO WATER USAGE, HOWEVER THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE EXCESSIVE IN THEIR WATER USE.  WITH AUTOMATIC LAWN SPRINKLERS IT IS EASY TO OVER USE WATER.   MOST LAWN EXPERTS STATE “IF PEOPLE WATER MORE THAN TWO DAYS A WEEK, THEY ARE WATERING TOO MUCH”.  FURTHER, A BIG PERCENT OF THE WATER SPRINKLED DURING THE HEAT OF THE DAY IS LOST TO EVAPORATION.

 

UNFORTUNATLY THIS CREATES A PROBLEM FOR ALL OF THE US.  IT IS OUR COMITTMENT TO SUPPLY ALL OF THE HOUSEHOLDS WITH A NORMAL AMOUNT OF WATER.  WE ARE SUPPLYING MUCH MORE WATER THAN THE TCEQ REQUIREMENTS.

 

“DRINKING WATER IS PRECIOUS AND VERY LIMITED, PLEASE CONSERVE IT!”

 

 

ABSOLUTELY NO OUTSIDE WATERING EXCEPT AS STATED BELOW.

 

IRRIGATION OF LANDSCAPED AREAS WITH HOSE-END SPRINKLERS OR AUTOMATIC IRRIGATION SYSTEMS SHALL BE LIMLTED TO THE FOLLOWING DAYS AND TIMES:

 

MONDAYS, FOR THOSE WITH A STREET ADDRESS ENDING WITH NUMBERS 1,2 OR 3.

 

WEDNESDAYS, FOR THOSE WITH A STREET ADDRESS ENDING WITH NUMBERS 4, 5 OR 6.

 

FRIDAYS, FOR THOSE WITH A STREET ADDRESS ENDING WITH NUMBERS 7,8,9 OR 0.

 

TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS OR SATURDAYS, REGULAR WATERING OF TREES, BUSHES OR GARDEN AREAS BY FAUCET FILLED BUCKET OR WATERING CAN IS ALLOWED ANYTIME.
