Update on Sieber Drive:
The section of road to be repaired is located mainly in the City of
Arlington’s city limits per a survey. DWG city staff has been in communication
with Arlington and has been informed that the City of Arlington is seeking
bid proposals for the project. At this time, Dalworthington Gardens has not
been informed of a specific date to when the repairs will begin. The
failure is located in an area that was very close to the City limit boundaries.
A survey was performed to determine which City would be responsible for
the repairs. Once surveys determined the failure was located in Arlington city
limits it became their project.
Bid opening for the road improvements is July 29. The bid opening for crack
sealing was July 15, the city received three bids. After the City Engineer
reviews the bids, they will go before City Council.
Water restriction notice:
The City is still under Stage 1 water restrictions in compliance with the City of
Fort Worth and the Tarrant Regional Water District. The primary focus of Stage
1 actions is to significantly reduce outdoor watering, which can account for as
much as 50 percent of the daily residential water used during the summer.
Stage 1 limits outdoor watering with an irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler
to a maximum of two assigned days per week for all customers. Residential
customers whose addresses end in odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) are permitted
to water lawn and landscapes only on Thursdays and Sundays. Addresses ending
in even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8 or 0) may water on Wednesdays and Saturdays
only. Non-residential customers, including apartments, businesses, parks and
common areas, can water only on Tuesday and Fridays. No watering is allowed
The time of day restriction, which prohibits outdoor watering with sprinklers
between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., continues to be in effect.
Watering by hand-held hose, drip irrigation or soaker hose is allowed at any
time. Residents are encouraged to limit such watering to a maximum of two
hours per day.
Other Stage 1 measures include the following.
- Vehicle washing is limited to the use of hand-held buckets and a hose with a positive shutoff valve. Vehicles may be washed at any time at a carwash.
- No hosing of buildings or other structures for purposes other than fire protection.
- Encouraging no hosing of paved areas, such as sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.
- Encouraging hotels, restaurants and bars to serve water only upon request.
- Establishing new turf is discouraged, and a variance is required to do so.
