Lawn Watering Restrictions
The watering of lawns and landscapes using irrigation systems (watering with sprinklers) fed by the City of Burleson's Water Supply is prohibited (Ordinance B-768-07) for both residential and commercial water customers between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. any day of the year, however, variances may be granted under certain conditions.
Wholesale water providers, such as the City of Fort Worth, are required to implement water conservation measures such as these by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
. Those providers then require their customer cities, such as the City of Burleson, to implement the same restrictions.
Any person, firm, or corporation who does not comply with the water conservation requirements laid out in Ordinance B-768-07 is subject to fines up to $500 per violation.
