Stage 1 Water Watch

water-stage-1-672x372

The lack of meaningful rainfall and continued high temperatures are leading to high water use among City of Celina customers.  Upper Trinity, whom we purchase our drinking water from, has determined that water demand is approaching a level that will cause a reduced delivery capacity for all or part of its transmission system.  Therefore, Upper Trinity is initiating its Stage 1 -  Water Watch of its Drought Contingency Plan.  City of Celina has been requested to implement their respective drought contingency plan, including the following mandatory time-of-day and maximum two-times-per-week landscape watering schedule.


  • Limit outdoor watering with automatic systems or hose-end sprinklers to no more than two times per week.
  • Prohibit outdoor watering with automatic irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Restrict washing of any motor vehicle to the use of a hand-held bucket or a hand-held hose equipped with a positive shut-off nozzle for quick rinses.  Vehicle washing may be done at any time on the immediate premises of a commercial car wash facility or commercial service station.  Companies with an automated on-site vehicle washing facility may wash its vehicles at any time.


City of Celina will also implement the following:

  • Increase public education efforts on ways to reduce water use.
  • Encourage reduction in frequency of draining and refilling swimming pools.
  • Discourage water waste associated with recreational (water used for leisure, games and entertainment purposes) use from faucets, hoses, or hydrants.
  • Intensify efforts on leak detection and repair.
  • Be alert to internal non-essential water use (e.g., vehicle washing, operation of ornamental fountains, etc.)
  • Irrigation System Check-Up Request Form


The goal for water use reduction under Stage 1 is 5% of total daily water use under normal conditions.  The City of Celina may grant waivers to individual retail customers based on conditions and circumstances.

For more information please contact our Public Works department at (972)382-2682 x 4000.


Effective Date:                  July 19, 2018, and continue in effect until further notice
