Stage 3 Water Restrictions

North Texas Municipal Water District Enacts Stage 3 Water Restrictions

Mandatory Water Restrictions Allows Watering Once Weekly beginning June 1

Stage 3 mandatory water restrictions will be enacted June 1 by the City of Heath as directed by the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD), the city’s water supplier via the City of Rockwall.

City of Heath water customers will be allowed to water landscapes and lawns with sprinklers or irrigation systems one day per week, according to the schedule below.

These water conservation measures are necessary due to low water levels at the reservoirs for NTMWD, which are Lake Lavon, Lake Chapman (Cooper Lake) and Lake Tawakoni. The water conservation measures are also needed because of the loss of the NTMWD’s supply from Lake Texoma due to the Zebra Mussel infestation.

While NTMWD is working to secure additional water supplies, it is likely that water use restrictions will remain in effect for the foreseeable future if North Texas does not receive significant rainfall.

You can view watering schedules, a map and list of the streets included in the water schedule, and a complete list of water use actions allowed and prohibited at the City’s website by selecting the Drought Declaration document.

Stage 3 restrictions are mandatory, and violations could result in a fine of up to $2,000. You can get more information about potential future water supplies, tips on how to conserve water at home and view water reservoir levels at
