On June 23, 2014 North Richland Hills updated its Water Conservation Plan
and joined other Tarrant County communities in making outdoor watering restrictions permanent. The permanent watering restrictions limit the use of sprinklers and irrigation systems to no more than twice per week based on the above schedule. This is the same as the Stage 1 Drought restrictions that have been in place since June 2013.
North Richland Hills also remains under Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency Plan
. Under Stage 1, all water customers are discouraged from hosing off sidewalks, driveways, patios, parking lots and buildings. Pool owners are encouraged to reduce the frequency of draining and refilling swimming pools. All property owners are encouraged to use drought tolerant plants. When washing vehicles, you are encouraged to use a hand-held bucket or hand-held hose equipped with a positive-pressure shutoff nozzle for quick rinses. Hotels, restaurants, bars are encouraged to serve drinking water to patrons on an "on demand" basis. Hotel patrons encouraged to reuse linens and towels.
