STAGE 3 RESTRICTIONS REMAIN IN EFFECT
(March 11, 2012) Starting Sunday, March 11, the time-of-day restrictions of the city’s Water Management Plan go into effect with Daylight Saving Time (DST). During DST outdoor watering is not allowed between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. and between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. This year DST runs from March 11 through November 4.
In addition to time-of-day rules, restrictions under Stage 3 of the city’s Drought Contingency and Water Emergency Response Plan remain in effect. The City of Frisco moved to Stage 3 restrictions November 1, 2011, at the direction of the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD). Frisco’s Stage 3 allows watering on trash collection day -- only if necessary. The city urges residents to keep automatic sprinkler systems ‘turned off’ at this time.
Stage 3 allows residents to use hand-held and soaker hoses to help protect home foundations, pools, trees and shrubs.
