Effective immediately, the City of Tye will move to Stage 2 Water Warning. Tye purchases its water from the City of Abilene, therefore, citizens of Tye must abide by Abilene's water restrictions. 

Water customers may do outside watering of landscape one day every two weeks. Customers' watering schedule is determined by the last digit of the house number or property address. Landscape watering using sprinklers or drip irrigation will be permitted between midnight to 10am and 6pm to midnight on designated days. Shrubs, trees, flowerbeds and gardens can be watered anytime with hand-held hoses and buckets.

Customers' watering schedule is as follows:

7 or 8 - Every other Sunday                  2 - Every other Thursday
9 - Every other Monday                        3 or 4 - Every other Friday
0 - Every other Tuesday                       5 or 6 - Every other Saturday
1 - Every other Wednesday

Failure to abide by these restrictions may result in fines up to $500 and termination of water service.  For more information, contact Tye City Hall. Let's all do our part to conserve our water.
