JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas —

As of June 11, Joint Base San Antonio military officials have issued Stage 2 water restrictions at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Lackland.

Designated watering days are based on the last digit of an address or facility number:

 · If address/facility number ends in 0 or 1 Monday is the watering day.

 · If address/facility number ends in 2 or 3 Tuesday is the watering day.

 · If address/facility number ends in 4 or 5 Wednesday is the watering day.

 · If address/facility number ends in 6 or 7 Thursday is the watering day.

 · If address/facility number ends in 8 or 9 Friday is the watering day.

 

Landscape watering with an irrigation system, sprinkler or soaker hose is allowed only once a week from 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m. on your designated watering day, as determined by your address or facility number.

Watering with drip irrigation or a five-gallon bucket is permitted any day but only between 7-11 a.m. and 7-11 p.m.

Watering with a hand-held hose is allowed any time on any day. Use of fountains, waterfalls or other aesthetic water features (outdoors or indoors) is prohibited unless a variance has been granted for 100 percent non-potable water use.

Installation of new landscape plantings or turf is prohibited unless included in contract deliverables, required to repair damage resulting from maintenance or construction actions, or authorized by the base civil engineer.

Irrigation of new turf or landscape outside of the allowed times requires base civil engineer approval. Irrigation of athletic fields is permitted only as required to maintain the turf viability/safety. Athletic fields may water between the hours of 3-8 a.m. and 8-10 p.m. once per week.

Those found not abiding with the JBSA Critical Period Management Plan may face potential disciplinary measures. Reports will remain anonymous.
