From City of Lubbock:

For the past couple of years, the South Plains has experienced extreme drought conditions.  State climatologists are predicting that 2013 will be another hot, dry year. Based on the continued drought forecast, the city will remain on Stage 1 drought restriction. Beginning on April 1st, the City's annual water conservation measures begin. Landscape irrigation may occur place on two assigned days per week. Irrigation schedules are based on the last digit of the house address:

-Monday and Thursday - Addresses ending in 0, 3, 4, or 9
-Tuesday and Friday - Addresses ending in 1, 5, or 6
-Wednesday & Saturday - Addresses ending in 2, 7, or 8

The additional restrictions are also in place:

-Irrigation is not permitted between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
-Irrigation must be applied without significant runoff.
-Irrigate less than 1.5 inches of water per week.
-Do not irrigate during precipitation.

Soaker hoses, drip irrigation, and hand watering are allowed any day at any time. City operations and wholesale customers must adhere to restrictions. Variance applications for irrigating new landscape material are available at water.ci.lubbock.tx.us/waterrestrictions.aspx.

The City of Lubbock asks that all residents and businesses continue to be considerate and efficient with their water usage in an effort to conserve water and reduce overall demand.
