Abilene is now following a 3-day per week water conservation schedule

How Can You Help Save Water in Abilene?

Year Round Water Use Management is triggered when the Lake Fort Phantom Hill is less than 5 feet below the spillway. At this stage, outdoor watering has been expanded to three times per week. Please refer to the chart below to see when your designated days are for watering.

Despite moving to Year Round Water Management from Stage 1 water conservation, City officials still encourage residents to conserve water by watering their lawn once every seven days on one of the designated water days.
