[ARCHIVED] Water Conservation Expires at 6 p.m.

Temporary Water Conservation

Denton Water Utilities is asking residents to conserve water temporarily as we work to finalize earlier repairs.

UPDATE | July 25, 2023, 3:45 p.m. – The temporary water conservation request will expire at 6 p.m. tonight, July 25, 2023, as repairs to the raw waterline are scheduled to be complete. We appreciate your cooperation during this time.

Denton, TX, July 21, 2023 – Denton Water Utilities is asking residents to temporarily conserve water on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, as we work to finalize repairs that took place on July 13 to one of our Raw Waterlines. The scheduled repairs are anticipated to be completed by the end of the day. Once repairs have been completed, we will notify the public that the temporary conservation request has been lifted. We do not anticipate more conservation requests resulting from this repair. 

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 avoid watering lawns and landscaping. It is best practice to water landscape no more than twice a week to encourage deep root systems. We ask that residents water deeply Sunday, July 23, or Monday, July 24, in order to avoid watering on Tuesday.  

Efforts will be made to repair the leak and restore standard water supply as quickly as possible. Denton Water Utilities' dedicated crews will diligently work to resolve the situation. There will be no impact to water quality, and water will be available for all essential needs, such as drinking, cooking, and bathing. An update will be given by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25.

Denton Water Utilities sincerely appreciates the cooperation of residents during this temporary water conservation request. By working together, we can effectively manage our precious water resources and ensure the well-being of our community.
