City of Houston says cut down the yard watering

No surprise our drought situation has the city of Houston asking to cut back on the grass and yard watering:

Lack of rain and record high temperatures has made it necessary to institute the City's Stage One Water Conservation Measures, as outlined in Chapter 47 in the Code of Ordinances.

The City requests residents limit lawn watering to the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. and NO more than two days per week.

Residents are asked to abide by the following schedule:

Sundays and Thursdays for customers with even-numbered street addresses

Saturdays and Wednesdays for customers with odd-numbered street addresses

The City will also be contacting large commercial water customers to request voluntary reductions in water consumption.

As required by the ordinance, City departments are instituting a water use reduction program which includes but is not limited to:

Reducing water use by 10 percent Implementing corrective measures to eliminate water waste
