Water Updates from NTMWD:

7/28/16 - The Summer is The Time to Monitor the Moisture of Soil Around Your Home's Foundation

Drip irrigation systems and soaker hoses can help maintain the proper soil moisture. Despite occasional showers over the past few weeks, the soil around many homes in North Texas is beginning to dry out, and in some cases, pull away from foundations which can lead to costly repairs. Homeowners are advised to check their home's foundation and consider using drip irrigation systems or soaker hoses to keep soil at the proper moisture level. Read the recent press release.
