Schertz is proud of its water! Since March 2003, the City receives its water from the Carrizo Aquifer. Unlike other cities in the area that rely on the Edwards Aquifer, Schertz customers have high quality water with limited use restrictions.
Schertz encourages good stewardship of our water resource and promotes a year-round water conservation plan. The rules are simple to follow:
- Year round outdoor sprinkler watering is prohibited between 10:00AM to 8:00PM daily. The use of a handheld hose or other handheld watering device or a drip irrigation system can be used at any time.
- It shall be a violation if a person or customer allows water to run off into a non-pervious ditch, or fails to repair a controllable leak.
- Re-use water usage is exempt from the water conservation plan.
- Customers using water from a private water well must comply with all requirements of the water conservation plan.
- All persons are urged not to waste water.
While not anticipated, the City reserves the right to impose further water use restrictions in emergency situations. In this event, more information will be posted on this web site.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires the City to provide users with a water quality report. All reports are for the previous year. If you have any questions about this report or need further information, please contact Public Works at 210.619.1800 during business hours.
