The City of Corinth has partnered with Upper Trinity Regional Water District to promote a ‘Water My Yard’ conservation initiative.   This program is in collaboration with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service for residents in the Denton County area. ‘Water My Yard’ is a free and simple internet-based tool that enables residents to use actual real-time information in determining how much and how long to water their landscape on a weekly basis. 


‘Water My Yard’ uses data collected from local weather stations, along with the customer’s irrigation system specifications, to recommend to residents how much water is needed on their landscape. Watering recommendations are provided in minutes, making it easy for residents to adjust their irrigation system as needed and maximize water efficiency. 


“Residents are encouraged to use this science-based program to help alleviate the problem of overwatering,” said Cody Collier, Director of Public Works. “It is recommended that landscapes be watered no more than two times per week and then only when needed. By following these guidelines, customers will save both water and money.”


To learn more about ‘Water My Yard’ and sign up for weekly e-mails and text messages,visit www.watermyyard.org.  Residents may also visit the Upper Trinity Regional Water District website for additional conservation resources.
