At Elpasotx.biz we love to water our lawn so we want to help you stay informed about ordinances employed by the Water Conservation Ordinance in El Paso, Tx. It is not too hard to figure out what days you can water and cannot water your lawn as you can always check at the El Paso Water Service’s website or now here at ElPasoTx.biz You should strictly adhere to the watering schedule that applies to you because if you violate the city’s ordinance you can be cited with a Class C misdemeanor violation. The fines span from $50 to $500 per citation.
Let us state first what water uses are considered wasting water and are prohibited in El Paso, Tx. The first and most obvious violation is watering on the wrong day or time that does not apply to you. Also you may not use so much water that it flows into the public’s right of way and drainage systems. Last but not least if you have a water leak you have up to 5 days to fix it or it is a violation.
The first rule of thumb you need to remember is that it there is no residential watering on Mondays. The watering schedule is as follows:
If you live in an EVEN numbered address you may water Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
If you live in an ODD numbered address you may water Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Also there are time restrictions that you need to follow so that you do not commit a violation. The only dates that you are time restricted from watering your lawn or garden are from April 1st to September 30th. Any other date other than this it is fine to water all day. Here is the time restriction watering schedule:
April 1st to September 30th: You may water before 10am and after 6pm.
Do You Love To Wash Your Car?
If you wish to use water to wash your car you may do so but only with a bucket full of water and soap or a water hose with a shut off nuzzle. You can always wash your car at a car wash any day at car wash establishments approved by El Paso Water Utilities.
If you wish to change your watering day for any hardship reason you may do so by applying for a variance by contacting the Water Conservation Department. Your request will be reviewed, modified and approved by the review board. For the most part, your request will be granted if you have hardship issues like old age, health issues and cannot water on the allowed days because you depend on someone else to do yard work for you.
