Summer water-usage tips
It’s that time of year again, when we would like to share some information with our residents about sprinkler use, swimming pools, and other watering tips as we approach the year’s peak water-usage period. Visit our website for answers to frequently asked questions, such as:
- How much water does my sprinkler system use?
- How much water does my pool use to refill from evaporating?
- If I have a leak, how much water is being wasted? (Leaking faucets and toilets are among the most common issues that cause increase in water usage.)
Visit TheColonyTx.gov for more information or call our Utility Billing Department at 972-625-2741, Option 0. Don't forget! The City is currently in Phase 1 of our Drought Contingency Plan (PDF), in which residents are encouraged to follow a twice-weekly watering schedule based on your address, with those ending in an even number watering on Sundays and Thursdays; odd numbered addresses on Saturdays and Wednesdays; and no watering on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Fridays.
