How Can You Help Save Water in Abilene?

The City of Abilene works to conserve water throughout the year using what's called Year Round Water Use Management.

The system and its stages are dependent upon water levels at Lake Fort Phantom Hill. When Lake Fort Phantom Hill has risen to less than 5 feet below the spillway, watering can be expanded to three times per week. 

Abilene is currently in a 3-day-a-week watering stage. Please refer to the chart below to see your designated days for watering.

City officials still encourage residents to conserve water by watering their lawn once every seven days on one of the designated water days.

The City of Abilene is committed to keeping each resident and business informed on the latest news concerning our water resources and educating on conservation, processes and services provided.

Each year, the City of Abilene provides residents and businesses with a water quality report that summarizes the quality of water provided to customers, based on data from the most recent Environment Protection Agency (EPA)-required tests. Through vigilant oversight, the City of Abilene's Water Utilities Department is dedicated to providing high-quality, safe water.

Water Sources

It begins with the city's reservoirs, which provide good-quality raw water. Along the water's journey into customers' homes and businesses, trained, certified operators consistently work to meet stringent water quality standards. Water is analyzed in all stages of production, from the city's creeks, lakes, treatment plants, and distribution system, ensuring that it is safe to drink. We are proud to report that our drinking water meets or exceeds all United States Environmental Protection Agency drinking water requirements.


The report summarizes the quality of the water the city provides, as well an annual report of information about the water utilities department and its various functions. We hope this information helps you become more knowledgeable about what is in your drinking water.
