Conservation Measures

The City of Southlake has enacted year-round conservation measures due to regional dry conditions in the North Texas area. By doing this, Southlake is promoting stewardship of the environment and conservation of a finite resource. Water conservation is intended to be a long-term strategy to achieve per-capita consumption reductions and avoid costly investments in additional infrastructure to transport and store potable water.


Southlake has adopted a permanent twice-per-week watering schedule (City's Code of Ordinances) and maintains restricting the watering of landscapes and lawns using automatic irrigation systems between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. every day, regardless of rainfall conditions. The purpose of this year-round restriction is to prevent the unnecessary loss of water to evaporation during the hottest hours of the day. Watering during these hours is permitted only if using a hand-held hose.

The guidelines which the City of Southlake follows are in line with regional conservation efforts promoted by the Tarrant Regional Water District and the city's direct wholesale water supplier, the City of Fort Worth.
