Frisco Remains in stage 3 water restrictions
As we fall back from Daylight Saving Time on November 2, the City of Frisco will implement fall and winter season water restrictions. Frisco remains in Stage 3 Water Restrictions. View the Stage 3 Water Schedule map.
With cooler temperatures, dormant grasses, and Frisco weather station data from the past several years, outdoor watering is virtually unnecessary until next spring. In order to conserve water and help lake levels recharge this winter, the City of Frisco highlights the following water conservation measures supported in our Water Management Plan:
1. After you change your clocks and replace your smoke alarm batteries, TURN OFF your sprinkler system, and change the batteries in your sprinkler controller. It is also a good time to make sure that your rain and freeze shut-off sensor is working properly.
2. Check the city website, sign up for the weekly e-mail, or call the watering line (972-292-5801) to verify that weekly outdoor watering is not necessary, based on Frisco's weather station recommendations.
3. If outdoor watering with an automatic sprinkler system is necessary, please use your regular trash day between 10 am and 6 pm to avoid freezing conditions.
4. The use of hand-held hoses, soaker hoses, and drip/bubbler systems is permitted on any day up to two hours per day for trees, shrubs, turf, and foundations.
5. The planting and watering of cool season grasses, such as ryegrass, is prohibited and is considered a violation.
6. In addition to violations including watering on the wrong day, watering impervious surfaces like streets and alleys, water flowing away from property, and watering during rainfall; watering below 40°F is also a violation and can result in slippery frozen surfaces if temperatures fall below freezing.
The best thing you can do is simply TURN OFF your sprinkler system. Turning your sprinkler system off will prevent run-off water from freezing onto streets or sidewalks during freezing weather conditions.

Smoke Testing Scheduled
The City of Frisco will be performing Smoke Testing on the city's sanitary sewer system. Testing will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. These sewer inspections help staff locate possible leaks, breaks, and defects in the sewer system. If you receive a yellow smoke testing flyer, it is to inform you that smoke testing will be conducted in your area. The information gained from the testing will be used to improve the quality of your wastewater collection system.
