    City officials in Southlake are cracking down on people who violate the city’s watering restrictions.

    The city has issued 430 violation notices for illegal watering leading into the first week of August. 

    Deputy Director of Public Works, Chuck Kendrick told the Southlake Journal more than 100 warnings were issued Monday, a day when no watering is allowed under Southlake's current Stage 1 watering schedule.

    Only warnings were issued by the city -- not citations, which can carry fines as high as $2,000. If they had handed out fines, at $2,000 each... that would been worth $860,000.
