Effective Monday, July 3rd, the City of Alamo Heights has declared Stage 3 Water Restrictions. These are changes mandated by order of the Edwards Aquifer Authority.
Landscaping Watering (using automatic or manual irrigation systems) is permitted only once EVERY OTHER week between hours 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The last number of your address determines what day you are able to water. You may water once during the week of July 3rd and it is a non-watering week during the week of July 10th.
You may use drip irrigation, soaker hose, or bucket (5-gallon or less container) during any day of the week but only between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. A hand-held hose may be used any day of the week at any time. Filling new pools is prohibited unless at least 30% of the water is obtained from a source other than the Edwards Aquifer. Refilling of existing pools is only allowed if the pool has been drained for repairs and at least 30% of the water is obtained from a source other than the Edwards Aquifer. Newly planted sod does not qualify for a variance in stage three restrictions.
All restrictions are still in place:
