Watering days stay the same in Stage 2 as in Stage 1, but watering hours are shortened: 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m. on your day.
San Antonio has only been under Stage 1 drought restrictions for a couple of weeks, but dry, hot conditions have settled in causing the Edwards Aquifer 10-day average to drop to 650 feet, triggering Stage 2 drought restrictions.
Watering days stay the same in Stage 2 as in Stage 1, but the hours during which watering is allowed are shortened. Watering with a sprinkler, irrigation system or soaker hose is allowed only between 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m. on your designated day. Watering with a hand-held hose is still allowed any time on any day.
Watering restrictions are not suggestions — they are municipal laws that will be enforced. Contracted police officers are patrolling and they can issue a citation if they witness a violation.
Lastly, if you see any of your neighbors or commercial locations watering on the wrong day, at the wrong time or if you see water waste, you can report that here.
