Water Conservation Plan

The City is currently in Stage 1, Water Awareness

Water Conservation Plan Revision Ordinance Number 2022-1582 was passed in 2022 to amend the Daily Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan. The Drought Contingency Plan describe the stages the City of Coppell has established. The Ordinance establishes the stages based on the demand and the City's ability to supply water.

No outside watering will be allowed between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm, with the exception of hand watering, the use of non-spray irrigation systems, and the use of soaker hoses, which will be allowed all days, at all times during Stage 1. 


Per Section 3-1-12C of the Code of Ordinances, any person who violates the Water Conservation Plan is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500. Each day that one or more of the provisions in the plan is violated will constitute a separate offense. If a person is convicted of three or more distinct watering violations, the City Manager, upon due notice to the customer, is authorized to discontinue water service to the premises where such violations occur. Services discontinued under such circumstances will be restored only upon the receipt of the $20 re-connection fee, as well as payment of any other costs incurred by the City of Coppell in discontinuing service. In addition, suitable assurance must be given to the City Manager that the same violations will not be repeated while the Water Conservation Plan is in effect. Compliance with this plan may also be sought through injunctive relief in the district court.
