New Water Restrictions Monday
Wanna wash your car on Monday? You can't do it. Beginning Monday the Smith County Municipal Utility District #1 will implement water restrictions.
That means using water outside for lawns, gardens and car washing, is restricted to Saturday and Sunday or from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Wednesday.
If you're caught breaking the rules, a warning will be issued for a first-time offense. After that it's a $250 fine for residential and $1,000 for non-residential. What's more, they'll shut off your water until the fine is paid.
Lindale and Bullard are already under similar restrictions.
