The summer heat has arrived and you may notice your lawn and flower beds starting to suffer. We want to remind everyone that Burleson has year-round lawn watering restrictions and a watering schedule based on your street address.
The watering of lawns and landscapes using irrigation systems (watering with sprinklers) fed by the city of Burleson's water supply is prohibited for both residential and commercial water customers between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. any day of the year, however, variances may be granted under certain conditions.
- If your residential address ends in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) you can use an irrigation system to water your landscape on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
- If your residential address ends in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) you can use an irrigation system to water on Thursdays and Sundays.
- All non-residential water locations (apartment complexes, businesses, industries, parks, medians, etc.) may water on Tuesdays and Fridays.
- Monday is a no-water day.
Lawns and landscaping may be watered on any day with a hand-held hose, drip irrigation, soaker hose or tree bubbler. Irrigation using alternative water sources - a well or reclaimed or reused water - are excluded from the irrigation restrictions.
The outdoor water restrictions became permanent in April 2014 due to a required change in the city’s water conservation plan. Since the city of Burleson purchases its water from the city of Fort Worth, Burleson must approve a drought contingency plan that mirrors Fort Worth’s plan. In April 2014, Fort Worth made the maximum twice-per-week landscape restriction permanent, year-round.
