Who selected the Tuesday/Friday, Wednesday/Saturday, and Thursday/Sunday watering schedule?
The lawn watering schedule was established by a joint water conservation panel of various municipal technical staff, and water conservation experts. The specific days were chosen by a committee of representatives from Fort Worth, Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) and some of the 26 wholesale customer cities served by Fort Worth and TRWD. It allows residential customers to water twice weekly, each group having a weekday and a weekend day. This watering schedule evenly distributes the consumption of water throughout the region. Mondays were purposefully excluded because it has historically been a day of unusually high demand for the entire area, possibly because many commercial and industrial users resume production activities after having been closed for the weekend.
