The City of Frisco wants to remind residents that mandatory water restrictions for summer months are effective from July 1 through September 30. The Water Management Plan, which emphasizes watering efficiently and reducing waste, was adopted by the city council in April.  Each year, starting with the first day of Daylight Saving Time through June 30, two-day-per-week outdoor watering is recommended. Restrictions become mandatory during the summer months of July, August and September. The plan prohibits outdoor watering between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. and between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Under the new Water Efficiency Plan, outdoor watering is also restricted to two days per week and is based on residents’ trash and recycling service schedule and an additional, designated day. Water on your residential trash pick up day / your additional watering day is:

Monday – Thursday
Tuesday – Saturday
Wednesday – Saturday
Thursday – Sunday
Friday – Tuesday

The City of Frisco’s Waterwise program is also helping citizens take the guesswork out of watering the lawn. A new edition to the Water Efficiency homepage: www.friscotexas.gov/water, is a table listing the weekly watering recommendations tailored for Frisco based on data from the city’s weather station and four automatic rain gages located throughout the city.
