New Water Conservation Measures are in Effect
Twice A Week Watering Is The NEW Norm!

The new Water Conservation Plan limits lawn watering to no more than twice a week even when no drought conditions exists.   This watering change is part of a regional initiative to save water and to encourage consumers to use water wisely.  This schedule change has become the new normal practice when it comes to watering lawns with sprinklers.

Garland Water Utility customers may water lawns with sprinklers two days a week.  Customers have the flexibility of choosing which two days of the week they water, based on need.  Remember to avoid watering your lawn with sprinklers between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. as this is a mandatory year-round water conservation regulation.

Smoke Testing of Sewer Lines (July 27 - September 30)

Inspection and smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system is done periodically. Smoke testing forces air that is filled with smoke in a sanitary sewer line.  If there are any leaks, smoke will appear on surface and aide in locating leaks within the sewer system. 

Smoke Testing will be conducted between July 27 and September 30, 2015 within the boundary of the following  locations:

  • Miller Road to Wood Drive and Jupiter Road to Shiloh Road
  • Miller Park Drive to Jupiter Road and Cavalier Drive to Miller Road
  • Miller Road to Grader Drive
  • Jupiter Road to Shiloh Road and West Buckingham Road to Belt Line Road
  • Jupiter Road to Shiloh Road and Oakland Street to Wood Drive
