With the extreme heat we're experiencing this summer, water conservation needs to be top of mind for everyone. With even hotter temperatures forecasted in August, our water supplier anticipates breaking records for usage in the coming weeks.
As a wholesale water customer of Fort Worth, the Town of Westlake will follow any future watering restriction required by the city of Fort Worth. The Drought/Emergency Water Use Plan has triggers the utility can use to implement additional water use restrictions if demands approach its limits to provide water. We can keep that from happening by following the Town's year-round time of day and day-of-week watering restrictions. Those requirements include:
Assigned irrigation days are Wednesday and Saturday for residential addresses ending in an even number – 0,2,4,6,8, and Thursdays and Sundays for addresses ending in an odd number – a 1,3,5,7,9. Businesses can irrigate on Tuesdays and Fridays.
No irrigation is allowed on Mondays or between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day. By following these guidelines we can all do our part in helping conserve water during these hot summer months.
