City of Plainview Water Conservation Plan Continues for 2023, Summer Watering Schedule in Effect

Plainview is Water Wise –  As such, the City of Plainview asks citizens to observe the mandatory twice a week outdoor watering schedule that specifies watering days for residents and businesses.

For businesses, industries, apartment complexes and parks, watering days are Monday and Thursday. 

For residents whose address ends in an even number (0,2,4,6 or 8), Tuesday and Saturday are the designated watering day. Residents with addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) may water on Wednesday and Sunday. 

On the scheduled watering days, lawn watering is acceptable from midnight to 10:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to midnight beginning April 1st through September 30th

Further ways to save water include ensuring no water runoffs when watering the lawn and no watering during precipitation events. Hand watering is allowed any time of the day and any day of the week.

Organizations with athletic fields, businesses with specific landscape needs or large properties that may not be adequately watered in the above time frames may submit a variance form to the City of Plainview’s Water Department for review and approval. Forms are available on the City’s website at www.plainviewtx.org.
