I work in the evenings and have noticed that at about 11;30 pm the City of Frisco is watering the street between Gaylord and Warren on the Tollroad access street. The city should check its own backyard before imposing greater restrictions on the rest of us.

Diane,

Thanks for your note regarding watering that is taking place in the Frisco Bridges area along the Tollway.

Actually, the City of Frisco does not maintain this area of the city and the irrigation system is handled privately through the Frisco Bridges Association. This is also the case for streets near the mall such as Gaylord Parkway, Parkwood Drive, and Warren Parkway.

Their water system utilizes a well system and does not utilize the City's water system.

If you still have questions about this, please feel free to let me know.

Sincerely,

Rick Wieland

I live on a one acre lot. Are their any restrictions for me drilling a well in my own back yard?

What can be done about the City watering the greenbelt/park between Canoe/Sundeck/Shepherd Hills just east and north of Gunstream Elem? I have expressed my concern to the number listed on the Stage 3 signs, but this area has been watered sometimes multiple times a day every day since May or June. Sometimes it is watered so much there is a lake in the middle of the greenbelt!

Frisco resident,

Thanks for your note about what I believe is the Shepherds Glen neighborhood park. The watering that you have witnessed along the park and greenbelt area have all been a part of the construction of the Shepherds Glen neighborhood park site. The contractor was establishing grass in various areas throughout the summer.

During the summer, the contractor has been watering in order to establish grass throughout this park.

The contractor is nearing the completion of this project and the watering that you have seen should be concluding shortly.

Should you have any additional questions, please let me or our staff know.

Thank you,

Rick Wieland

The apartments east of Lebaonon/Planation Lane water twice a day, almost every day.

What are the current water shutoff statistics?

Brian:

We will add these apartments to our watch list. If you have a time of day, that would be helpful. We do not distinguish betweeen water user types. We have turned off over 4,500 sprinkler systems since we began enforcement on June 1st. Fines are associated with citations. We do not issue citations, but charge a reconnection fee of $25 per violation that is added to the water bill. Thanks for your inquiry.
