Between November 1 and March 31, as outlined in Garland's Water Conservation Plan (PDF), all Garland water utility customers may water once per week using an in-ground sprinkler system. Customers have the flexibility to choose which day of the week to water. Watering with a hand-held device, soaker hose or drip irrigation is allowed any time on any day.
Please remember, our watering schedule is subject to change dependent on the weather conditions and effectiveness of local water conservation measures. Those changes would be posted on this page.
