This is Pflugerville’s watering restrictions. This information was obtained from the City of Pflugerville’s website. Please follow this to help conserve.

Mandatory Water Restrictions
Stage Two Water Rationing Restrictions

Under Stage Two water rationing, these restrictions are mandatory for all water customers:

• Limit watering landscaped areas to a twice-a-week watering schedule (below).

Twice-a-Week Watering Schedule:

• For residential customers with a last digit of their street address ending in an odd number, their water days are Wednesdays and Saturdays.

• For residential customers with a last digit of their street address ending in an even number, their water days are Thursday and Sundays.

• Commercial customers can water on Tuesdays and Fridays.

For all customers:

• Watering is allowed before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m. on your designated watering day.

• For those with automatic sprinkler systems: Set your system to start just after midnight on your day to water. This helps avoid using the system during peak hours of 6 am to 10 am.

• Limit outdoor watering to between midnight and 10 a.m. and between 7 p.m. to midnight on designated watering days. There are exceptions for new landscapes. During the first 10 days after installation, you may water once a day; for day 11 through 20, once every other day; and for day 21 through 30, once every third day.

• Do not wash motor vehicles, motorbikes, boats and other vehicles except during these hours on your designated watering days. Only use a bucket or hand-held hose equipped with a shutoff nozzle. (Exception: Commercial car washes, service stations and vehicles such as garbage trucks and those used to transport food and perishables.)

• Limit filling or refilling indoor or outdoor swimming pools, wading pools or Jacuzzi-type pools except on designated watering days and during designated watering hours.

• Don’t operate ornamental fountains or ponds unless it is necessary to support aquatic life or the ponds are equipped with a re-circulation system.

• Limit water use from hydrants to fire fighting and related activities. Exception is possible for construction purposes.

• Limit irrigation of golf course fairways to designated outdoor water use days and between hours of midnight and 10 a.m. and between 7 p.m. and midnight. Exception: Irrigation of golf course greens and tees is allowed every other day if a plan is filed and approved by LCRA. These restrictions don’t apply if the golf course uses an alternate water supply, such as reclaimed water, rainwater or gray water.

• Restaurants are urged to serve water to patrons only upon request.

• Do not wash down sidewalks, walkways, driveways and other hard-surfaced areas.

* Outdoor water is permitted at any time if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a faucet-filled bucket or a watering canof five gallons or less.

You can contact the City of Pflugerville to report any violations to the ordinance, including automatic or hose-end sprinklers that are watering on the wrong day, leaking, or creating runoff into the streets. Report violations to the City of Pflugerville by calling 512-251-4004.

Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) Implements Mandatory Water Restrictions

Due to continued drought conditions in Central Texas, LCRA has placed all of their water users, including the City of Pflugerville, under mandatory Stage Two water rationing restrictions.

The water that the City of Pflugerville pumps out of the Colorado River and into Lake Pflugerville actually starts in the Highland Lakes – Buchanan, Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls, Travis and Austin. During a time of drought, the water that is released from Buchanan and Travis does not replenish easily due to the lack of rain and runoff, therefore severely lowering the lake levels. Therefore, if the LCRA implements a water rationing program, all entities that receive water from the lower Colorado River are directly affected and have to implement the same program, including the City of Pflugerville.
