With booming populations, prolonged droughts and increased demand on a limited supply of water, it is more important than ever for each of us to use water wisely and efficiently to make sure our supplies last.
Outdoor Watering Guidelines
As a reminder the City of Melissa is under water conservation guidelines year round. There are specific restrictions which limit outdoor watering that vary seasonally.
- From April 1 through October 31, standard restrictions are in place and outdoor watering is limited to no more than twice per week as needed.
- Beginning November 1 through March 31, seasonal restrictions limit outdoor watering to no more than once per week only as needed.
To that end, current water guidelines are posted on the Water Conservation page along with a number of helpful links on what you can do to conserve at home.
Additionally, the City of Melissa as a customer city of the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) adopted the current Water Conservation and Water Resource and Emergency Management Plans (PDF) in April 2019.
