Mesquite, TX – July 28, 2022 – The City of Mesquite is asking residents and businesses to conserve water voluntarily due to continued unseasonably hot temperatures and a lack of rainfall. As a result, residents and businesses are reminded of the city’s water conservation plan which limits watering to twice per week, before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. Watering during these hours in hot temperatures eliminates evaporation.
Residents should also check faucets for leaks and malfunctions, as well as sprinkler systems to make sure irrigation is watering lawns and landscapes, not pavement. The City will contact any resident or business watering anything other than yards and beds.
The City is taking measures to reduce water use, as well. Parks and Recreation are watering twice per week, except for athletic spaces which may require more water due to safety reasons. In addition, the City has suspended fire hydrant testing to conserve water.
Residents can reduce water by practicing water saving measures around their household. For conservation tips visit www.cityofmesquite.com/conservationtips or the City’s Facebook account, or call the water conservation hotline at 972-329-8533.
