The spotlight on the numbers 7-11 in San Antonio isn’t just taking place in the Big Gulp convenience store world. The easy-to-remember numerals will soon be the focal point of your landscape care routine.

Starting Feb. 18, new watering hours will be in place for residents and businesses in drought stages 2 through 4: 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m.

This change is part of the city’s new 2013 Conservation Ordinance that was approved by City Council. These changes will provide residents with more opportunities to save water and money without compromising their landscapes by participating in effective residential and commercial conservation programs.

Whether you are a resident or a commercial customer, please familiarize yourself with these highlights of the 2013 Conservation Ordinance:

  • Sprinkler use allowed 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m. on your watering day in drought stages 2 through 4. The hours for Year-Round and Stage 1 remain the same as they are now.
  • All residential fountains can operate at any stage of drought.
  • Home car washing allowed during drought once per week on Saturday or Sunday as long as there is no water waste.
  • Hand watering still allowed any day and time during all drought stages.

For Commercial Customers:

  • All indoor commercial fountains can operate at any stage of drought.
  • Outdoor commercial fountains must have a SAWS variance in order to operate during drought stages 1 through 4.
  • Existing cooling tower owners shall register their tower with the SAWS Conservation Department by May 1, 2013. New cooling tower owners shall register their towers prior to the start of operation.

Those with irrigation systems will need to adjust their irrigation controllers for the new watering times in drought stages 2 through 4.
