The voluntary portion of Stage 1 involves the day of the week and the frequency of watering; residents and businesses are still encouraged to water no more than twice per week on the designated watering days.  All time of day and irrigation system requirements are still mandatory.

Watering Reminders

  • Irrigation is prohibited every day during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 1–Oct. 31.
  • Avoid water run-off, allowing water to collect on sidewalks and roadways.
  • Use of hand-held garden hose with a positive shutoff nozzle, soaker hose, bucket or drip irrigation allowed on any day.

The City of Irving will conserve water by:

  • Communicating as necessary with Dallas Water Utilities to initiate joint water management programs.
  • Working with major water users to voluntarily reduce water use.
  • Conducting public information programs to educate its customers, enlist their support of voluntary water use restrictions, and to remind customers that the summer water surcharge rate structure is in effect.
