Residents in east Fayetteville and Goshen asked to conserve water

East Fayetteville and Goshen (City of Fayetteville)

Residents in east Fayetteville and Goshen are being asked to conserve water and adjust their irrigation schedules.

Officials said dry conditions and extreme heat have led to an increased demand on the city’s water system, which has resulted in reduced water pressure for some customers, according to a news release. A similar request was made last summer.

The affected area is east of North Crossover Road, particularly off Highway 45 (Mission Blvd.) and Highway 16 (Huntsville Road).

City officials said they believe adjusting morning irrigation schedules to night time and restricting irrigation to specific days will assist in allowing the water system to recover.

The request is for customers with odd numbered addresses to water their lawns on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Even numbered addresses should water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Optimal times to water are between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m., according to the release.
