Save Water. Nothing Can Replace It.
The City of Arlington’s conservation program is
part of a regional effort to help plan for future water
supply needs and meet the requirements of the Texas
Commission on Environmental Quality and Texas
Water Development Board. With reservoir levels
decreasing and water capacity below normal, the City
of Arlington is asking residents and businesses to
comply with City ordinances and use water wisely.
The City of Arlington appreciates your commitment
to conserving water and we encourage you to save
water and money by changing your water use habits
today. For more water conservation tips, visit www.
Why do I see water being
discharged from the fire hydrants?
The practice of opening a fire hydrant and letting
the water run for several minutes is known as
flushing. This practice
improves water quality and
ensures you are getting the
freshest, highest quality
water to your home. Build-
up of sediment can occur
in pipelines and flushing
can help minimize any discoloration or sediment in
your water. If you notice sediment or discoloration in
your water, try letting the tap run for several minutes.
