Recommended Watering Schedule

The Recommended Watering Schedule was developed by College Station Water Services to help customers conserve precious drinking water while still maintaining a healthy landscape. Compliance is mandatory upon a declaration of Stage 1 or Stage 2 by the City Manager under the City of College Station's Drought Contingency Plan.

In order to conserve water, College Station encourages customers to water outdoors no more than TWO days per week. The schedule outlined below is voluntary and provided as a guideline. Start with one watering day per week, and then add one more day only when needed later in the summer, to optimize watering efficiency.
