Stage 1 water restrictions are set to be implemented next Monday. According to NBC DFW, the Tarrant Regional Water District starts water restrictions once local lake levels reach 75% of normal levels.
The watering rules are as follows:
- Businesses water on Tuesdays and Fridays.
- Residents with even numbered addresses water on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
- Residents with odd numbered addresses water on Thursdays and Sundays.
Residents are being asked not to water between 10 am and 6 pm.
Currently, Lake Grapevine is only 3 feet lower than normal. The problem is most lakes in the area are far lower. Eagle Mountain lake is over 4 feet low and Lake Arlington is down over 8 feet from normal lake levels. Lake Whitney is over 14 feet below normal.
