Water Restrictions May Become Permanent in Dallas

The city of Dallas is considering allowing outdoor watering only two days per week.

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.
