San Antonio Water System (SAWS) Reports: Stage One Water Restrictions? No problem.
As you've likely heard by now, Stage One watering rules are in effect. While some may consider drought restrictions to be a bad thing, you – our loyal subscribers – know it simply means making a few adjustments to your watering schedule.
During Stage One restrictions:
- Watering your lawn with an irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler is allowed once a week on your assigned day, before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m. (No drastic change here since our watering recommendations are to water your lawn only as needed and never more than once a week.)
- You're encouraged to reduce your overall water consumption by targeting outdoor irrigation more precisely. This is easily accomplished by watering with a hand-held hose, watering can, and/or soaker hose (these methods are allowed any time, on any day). The same applies to drip irrigation, just be sure to program it to run only as needed.
- Water features in your landscape must be turned off, unless they use 100 percent non-potable water.
