[ARCHIVED] Water Conservation Reminder

Sprinkler

This summer is hotter and drier than most. While the triple-digit days may have you wanting to run your sprinkler system more frequently for a greener lawn, all residents and businesses are reminded to follow the city's year-round Water Conservation Plan to prevent water waste.

Stick to your designated watering days, which are determined by the last number of your address:

  • Wednesday and Saturday for residential addresses ending in an even number – 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. 
  • Thursdays and Sundays for addresses ending in an odd number – 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9. 
  • Tuesdays and Fridays for businesses, apartments, parks and other common areas. 
  • No irrigation is allowed on Mondays or between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day.  

You should also perform a sprinkler system checkup monthly to make sure it is operating efficiently. Check for leaks and broken or clogged sprinkler heads. Fix sprinkler heads that are broken or spraying on the sidewalk, street, or driveway.  

The City of North Richland Hills purchases drinking water from Fort Worth Water and the Trinity River Authority.  Fort Worth Water reached a new high for water use on July 20, 2022 when customers used over 381 million gallons in a single day. This tops the previous record set on Feb. 17, 2021 by slightly more than 2.2 million gallons. Because of the ongoing drought and heat wave, water demand is expected to remain high through the rest of the summer.  

The lakes that supply our water are currently at around 85% of capacity. When lake levels reach 75%, Stage 1 of the Drought/Emergency Water Use Plan will be triggered.  Tarrant Regional Water District estimates lake levels could be at the Stage 1 trigger level by early October. Using water efficiently can help delay implementing further water use restrictions.
