City staff could suggest the change this week

View Comments ()


    The City of Dallas may go permanent with twice-a-week watering.

    Even without the drought, a limit of twice-a-week watering could soon become permanent in Dallas.

    The city staff will recommend the change at a city council briefing tomorrow.

    The change would extend the life of current water supplies and reduce the urgency of expensive new supplies.

    Dallas has been a high water use city in the past.

    Other North Texas cities and water municipalities are considering permanent restrictions as well.
