Landscape watering is limited to once every two weeks,
on your
trash day.

 Listed below are the proposed Stage 3 Strategies:

  • Prohibit landscape and lawn irrigation from 10 am to 6 pm.
  • Prohibit hosing of paved areas, buildings, or windows. (Pressure washing of impervious surfaces is allowed.)
  • Prohibit washing or rinsing of vehicles by hose except with a hose end cutoff nozzle.
  • Prohibit using water in such a manner as to allow runoff or other waste.
  • Prohibit hydro seeding, hydro mulching, and sprigging.
  • Prohibit operation of all ornamental fountains or other amenity impoundments to the extent they use treated water.
  • Existing swimming pools may not be drained and refilled (except to replace normal water loss)

Exceptions are as follows:

  • Foundations, new landscaping, new plantings (first year) of shrubs, and trees may be watered for up to 2 hours on any day by a hand-held hose, a soaker hose, or a dedicated zone using a drip irrigation system.
  • Public athletic fields used for competition may be watered twice per week.
  • Locations using other sources of water supply for irrigation may irrigate without restrictions.
  • Registered and properly functioning ET/Smart irrigation systems and drip irrigation systems may irrigate without restrictions.

Variance Requests to the water restrictions can be filed with the City Manager at citymgr@wylietexas.gov           

Below average rainfall, low lake levels prompt NTMWD Board to implement Stage 3 of Drought Contingency Plan.  North Texas Municipal Water District cannot access 28% of the total raw water supply from Lake Texoma because of the zebra mussel infestation..Press Release
