When and how can I water my yard? 

For residential customers, outdoor watering of lawn and landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems will follow this schedule:

• Customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8) may water on Saturdays and Wednesdays;
• Customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) may water on Sundays and Thursdays;
• Non-residential customers, including businesses, parks, and common areas, can water only on Tuesdays and Fridays;
• No watering is allowed on Mondays.

Outdoor watering with hose-end sprinklers is prohibited from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the assigned watering days.
Watering by drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any time.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two hours per day.

Other guidelines:
• Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash;
• No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection;
• Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.;
• Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance by the City of Willow Park is required.

Under the City of Willow Park's agreement to obtain surface water from the City of Fort Worth, these are the every day guidelines. The City does not anticipate having to implement any further restrictions, but further information in case of such restrictions can be found in the 2019 Drought Contingency Plan.

The City of Willow Park water system PWS ID 1840027 has violated the monitoring and reporting requirements set by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code(30 TAC), section 291, Subchapter F.

Public water systems are required to properly disinfect water before distribution, maintain acceptable disinfection residuals within the distribution system, monitor the disinfectant residual at various locations throughout the distribution system, and report the results of that monitoring to the TCEQ on a quarterly basis.

Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not your drinking water is safe from microbial contamination.

This/These violation(s) occurred in the monitoring period s) of the 3rd quarter. The violation was that the report was turned in late.

We are making sure that the required report will be turned in on a timely matter going forward. If you have any question regarding the matter, you may contact the Director of Public Works at 817-441-7708.

Backflow Prevention Program

The purpose of this program is to inform the citizens and insure that proper safeguards are in place to protect our drinking (potable) water system from the potential contamination risks imposed through cross connections. Backflow can occur when either a backsiphonage or a backpressure condition exists.

Backsiphonage backflow occurs when a vacuum is induced on a piping system; just like drinking from a glass with a straw.

Some typical situations in which backsiphonage may occur include:

  • Water Main Breaks
  • Hydrant Flushing or Fire Fighting
  • Undersized Plumbing in your Home or Business

Backpressure backflow may occur when a water user has an unprotected water line attached to a pressurized container and the pressure in the container becomes greater than the pressure within the City’s water mains.

Many common household uses of water may post a public health threat to our potable water, including:

  • Hose connections to chemical solutions sprayed to feed lawns or shrubs
  • Toilets without anti-siphon ball cocks
  • Lawn sprinkler systems
  • Chemically treated heating systems
  • Water softeners
  • Hose connections to a water outlet or laundry tub
  • Swimming pools
  • Solar Heating systems
  • Water operated sump drain devices

If you have questions concerning cross connection control and backflow prevention please call 817-441-7108
