April is Sprinkler Spruce-Up Month —time to learn how to inspect, connect, direct and select your way to more efficient sprinkler system use to save water and money this summer.

Attend a virtual Turf Irrigation and Maintenance water saving seminar on April 8 or a virtual Irrigation 101 workshop on April 13 to find out what you need to do to get your sprinkler system ready to go.

It is also time for a reminder that the City of Fort Worth conservation ordinance limits outdoor water use all year long.

  • No watering from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. except by handheld hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose.
  • No use of any type sprinkler system on Mondays.
  • Commercial customers, including multi-family residences, may water on Tuesday and Friday.
  • Residential addresses ending in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 may water on Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Residential addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 may water on Thursday and Sunday.

Twice-a-week watering is the maximum — you may not need to water as frequently. Sign up for the Weekly Watering Advice for a text or email with localized watering recommendations for each week.
