Water Conservation

Let Water Prosper

The Town of Prosper aspires to educate our residents on the importance of preserving water. Less than 1% of the earth’s fresh water is available for us to use, so we have an obligation to preserve our water for the future. Occasionally, we offer courses that range from rainwater harvesting and making rain barrels to teaching water conservation techniques.

Water Restrictions

Stage 1 Restrictions in Effect!

Beginning on November 1, 2016, and ending on March 31, 2017, winter watering restrictions will resume which allow residents to water up to once weekly.  The Town of Prosper encourages residents to set their controller to water manually, and only when recommended by WaterMyYard.org.

Residents may register at WaterMyYard to receive weekly emails on how much and when to water.
