Residents reminded of landscape watering times
SEGUIN, Texas – It’s that time of year when folks are doing what they can to keep their grass green through these hot summer months. However, it’s important to remember when the appropriate times to water, so we can avoid waste.
The guidelines for Stage 1 - Normal/Awareness of the city’s Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan are as follows:
- Water landscape during the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. (Watering with reuse water is exempt from reduction measures)
- Soaker hoses and watering by hand are permitted
- Look for ways to voluntarily reduce water consumption
- Conserve water by turning water off while brushing your teeth; wash vehicles early in the morning; take shorter showers; use dishwasher when full
Saving water also saves you money on your utility bill. You can read more about the city’s Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan on our website: https://www.seguintexas.gov/waterplan ###
