    With water restrictions in place, North Texans saved 45 million gallons per day.

    The three largest cities in North Texas could soon make water restrictions a permantent fixture.

    Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington are all considering making water restrictions permanent, which would only allow residents to water their lawns twice per week.

    All of the mayors of the respective cities, Mike Rawlings, Betsy Price and Robert Cluck, are working with the Tarrant Regional Water Distrcit on the plan.

    The district said when those restrictions were in place last summer, it saved nearly 45 million gallons of water per day.
