Flower Mound initiates water restrictions

The town of Flower Mound is implementing the first step of its emergency water demand management plan.

The town announced in a news release Friday that the lack of meaningful rainfall and continued high temperatures have led to high water use in Flower Mound and in other communities that receive water from the same wholesale providers.

“The current water demand is approaching a level that will cause a reduced delivery capacity for all or part of the transmission system,” the town news release said.

All residents are requested to:

  • Limit outdoor watering with automatic systems or hose-end sprinklers to no more than two times per week.
  • Prohibit outdoor watering with automatic irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Restrict washing of any motor vehicle to the use of a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive shut-off nozzle for quick rinses. Vehicle washing may be done at any time on the immediate premises of a commercial car wash facility or commercial service station. Companies with an automated on-site vehicle washing facility may wash vehicles at any time.

For more information, call 972-539-7378.
