[ARCHIVED] Water Conservation No Longer Needed

Alert Drought Contingency Plan

UPDATE: Temporary water conservation is no longer needed.

UPDATE | July 14, 2023, 8 a.m. – The temporary water conservation request is no longer necessary—repairs to the Raw Waterline are complete. We appreciate your cooperation during this time and thank the crews who worked diligently to resolve the situation.

Denton, TX, July 13, 2023 – Denton Water Utilities is asking residents to conserve water temporarily due to a leak on one of our Raw Waterlines. In an abundance of caution, the following measures are requested to help alleviate the strain on the water supply until the issue is resolved:

  • Avoid washing cars, trucks, and boats at home.
  • Refrain from draining and refilling pools or filling new pools and/or ornamental fountains.
  • Utilize a broom instead of a hose to clear sidewalks, porches, and driveways of debris.
  • Please adhere to the summer lawn and landscape ordinance by watering only between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m.

Efforts are currently underway to repair the leak and restore standard water supply as quickly as possible. Denton Water Utilities' dedicated crews are diligently working to resolve the situation. There is no impact to water quality. An update will be given by noon tomorrow (Friday, July 14, 2023).
