Water Updates:

October 29, 2015 - Minimal Outdoor Watering Needed November through March. Officials with the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) remind consumers that lawns in North Texas require very little to no supplemental watering during the fall and winter months, according to experts from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (AgriLife) in Dallas. To maintain reservoir levels for next year's water needs, NTMWD recommends consumers turn off irrigation systems and operate on manual mode and only as needed from November through March. Check with your city or water provider for specific guidelines and restrictions that are in effect in your service area

It is the first uncontested water rights permit issued by TCEQ for a major reservoir in the last 50 years, and one of the first uncontested inter-basin transfers of water. More
