San Antonio Stage 1 Water Restrictions


San Antonio Stage 1 Water Restrictions

The City of San Antonio has placed residents in Stage 1 of Drought Restrictions. What this means is that San Antonio homeowners are only allowed to water their lawns 1 day per week. Watering with a sprinkler or irrigation system is allowed once a week before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. on your assigned day, as determined by your address.

Last Digit

0 or 1 Monday
2 or 3 Tuesday
4 or 5 Wednesday
6 or 7 Thursday
8 or 9 Friday

No watering on weekends with a sprinkler, soaker hose or irrigation system. Areas without a street address, such as medians and neighborhood entryways, water on Wednesday.

Watering with a hand-held hose, watering can, and/or soaker hose (these methods are allowed any time, on any day) and makes targetted watering more precise.

You are encouraged to reduce your overall San Antonio water consumption.

We've been down to 2 days perweek for a lot of years now here in Martin County, Florida. They keep threatening one day per week, but hasn't happened yet.


Dallas just passed an lawn watering ordinance, they can only water twice per week, year round. (Not sure if they are on any type drought restrictions or not.)

However, I'm further south in San Antonio and we are under even more restrictive drought restrictions. New lawns have to be bermuda grass or other approved drought tolerant grasses.

I've done what I can to conserve water and not end up with a dust bowl of a lawn... increased mulched areas, thatched, aerated, top-dressed compost.

I think we may be in for another dry summer.
