Once-A-Week Watering For Our Frisco Sprinkler Repair Area

Once-A-Week Watering For Our Frisco Sprinkler Repair Area

Posted on June 10, 2013

frisco-sprinkler-repair-area-stage-3-watering-restrictionsWell folks, it’s here…once-a-week watering!  At first we at Pearson Sprinkler Company thought that the once-a-week watering restrictions came a bit early this year, but then we remembered the lack of rain that our Frisco sprinkler repair area and surrounding areas have experienced during this spring season and realized that yup, it’s right on target.  As of June 1st, most cities in our service area have adopted Stage 3 watering restrictions which permit using an automatic sprinkler system or hose-end sprinklers only once a week, if needed.  These cities include those that receive their water from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD).

The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD), which supplies water to the majority of our Frisco sprinkler repair area and surrounding areas, released a Press Release on April 25, 2013 stating that Board of Directors had voted to initiate Stage 3 of the NTMWD Water Conservation and Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan effective June 1, 2013.  The goal of Stage 3 is a 10% reduction in water use and increased awareness in ongoing water conservation efforts.  Under Stage 3, residential and business customers will be limited to landscape watering with sprinkler or irrigation systems once every seven days, if necessary.

Cities within the Pearson Sprinkler Service area that receive their water from the NTMWD include Allen, Fairview, Frisco, McKinney, Murphy, Parker, Plano, and Richardson.  Along with the Stage 3 watering restrictions come fines for violations.  Cities in our area are really starting to crack down on violators of the current watering restrictions.  Violators can expect to receive a fine on their water bill, have flow restrictors installed on their sprinkler system, have the water to their sprinkler system turned off, or even have their water service completely cut off!  Fines generally start on the low end for the first violation and increase in value for subsequent offences.  Based on research of each respective town or city’s website, the following watering days are permitted and violation consequences will be enforced.  Please consult your city to determine if there are any exceptions to the watering restrictions.

Allen – Please refer to the City of Allen’s “Stage 3 Outdoor Watering Schedule Map” to determine your neighborhood’s permitted watering day.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive fines on their water bills that will increase in amount for each violation ($200 to $2,000).

Fairview – Please refer to the Town of Fairview’s “Stage 3: Zone Designation and Watering Schedule” to determine your neighborhood’s permitted watering day.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will first be given a written warning, followed by citations with fines, then after two violations a flow restrictor will be installed on the sprinkler system, and then after three violations, water may be cut off to the customer.

Frisco – Watering is permitted on the residential trash collection day.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will have the water shut off to their sprinkler system, a red yard sign will be placed on their property, and they will receive fines that will increase in amount for each violation ($25 to $75).

McKinney – Watering is permitted on the residential trash collection day.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive fines on their water bills that will increase in amount for each violation ($50 to $150).

Murphy – Houses with even addresses can water on Wednesday and houses with odd addresses can water on Monday.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive fines on their water bills that will increase in amount for each violation (up to $2,000).

Parker – Watering is permitted on any one day during the week.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive fines on their water bills that will increase in amount for each violation (up to $2,000).

Plano – Houses with even addresses can water on Thursday and houses with odd addresses can water on Tuesday.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive fines on their water bills that will increase in amount for each violation (up to $2,000).

Richardson – Houses with even addresses can water on Saturday and houses with odd addresses can water on Sunday.  Violators of the current watering restrictions will receive a notice on the first offence, and may also receive a fine of $150.  If a second or subsequent citation is issued or if a citation is written as an “aggravated offense,” the violator will be required to appear before a municipal court judge to have the case resolved.  Violators may be fined up to $2,000.

We sincerely hope that all residents within our Frisco sprinkler repair area and surrounding areas take these watering restrictions seriously.  Our sprinkler systems use the most water of all water-using items in our homes.  If we don’t adhere to these watering restrictions, the next step will be Stage 4, where any unnecessary use of water is not permitted.  This means that no landscape watering would be permitted!
