Due to continued drought conditions, the City of Wolfforth has implemented the Stage Two Drought Contingency regulations.

ORDINANCE NO.  505

Stage 2 – Serious Water Shortage Conditions

Goal:  Achieve a twenty-five percent (25%) reduction in daily water demand.

Supply Management Measures:

Measures, if any, to be implemented to manage limited water supplies and/or reduce water demand may include reduced or discontinued flushing of water mains, activation and use of an alternative supply source(s); reduced or discontinued irrigation of public landscaped areas.

Mandatory Water Use Restrictions:

Water customers with automatic sprinkler systems are required to limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Mondays and Thursdays for customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, or no address) and Tuesdays and Fridays for water customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), and to irrigate landscapes only between the hours of 8:00 p.m. in the evening preceding the designated watering day and 10:00 a.m. on the morning of the designated watering day.  

Water customers with hose-end (impact, tractor, oscillating, etc.) sprinklers, regardless of addressing, are required to limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Sundays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. in the evening preceding the designated watering day and 10:00 a.m. on the morning of the designated watering day.  

Irrigation of landscaped areas is permitted at any time if it is by means of a hose held in hand, a faucet filled bucket or watering can of five (5) gallons or less, or a drip irrigation system.

All operations of the City of Wolfforth shall adhere to water use restrictions prescribed for Stage 2 of the Plan.

Water customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.

Property owners with private water wells within the City limits are also required to follow these regulations. (Ordinance No. 446)

Failure to comply with restrictions may result in a penalty or in discontinued water service.  Thank you for your cooperation as we all strive to conserve this essential resource.
