Defined Irrigation Schedule and Water Use Policy

Northwest Harris County Municipal Utility District No.5 (the“District”) has adopted a Defined Irrigation Schedule and Water Use Policy for residents of the District. This policy is intended to reduce irrigation during certain times of the day to reduce “peak” usage while providing customers with adequate water for landscaping. Irrigation is recommended only three days per week.
