Watering Conservation Ordinance Guidelines

Water. Don't Waste It! Avoid a Citation.

This summer, the City of Dallas will be expanding its efforts to mitigate water waste. In addition to their routine enforcement activities, the Department of Code Compliance will conduct periodic neighborhood patrols during off-peak hours. Code Inspectors will be on duty from 4:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and from 8:00 p.m. to midnight (including weekends). The program will kick-off on Monday, June 20, 2016 and continue through September 30, 2016.

Remember to do your part by observing the water conservation guidelines listed below.

  • Don’t water during any form of precipitation
  • Don’t allow your sprinkler system to water driveways, sidewalks and streets
