Water Conservation

Reduce Your Water Use

Water is an important part of our lives. To ensure availability for future generations, the withdrawal of fresh water from an ecosystem should not exceed its natural replacement rate. Thank you for your effort to reduce your water usage.

Currently there is no watering restriction in effect, however, the City of Forney asks that customers limit landscape irrigation use to two days per week. Conservation is still a priority. Please view watering restrictions frequently asked questions and watering calendars for your watering dates and other information.
