No outside watering of any kind is allowed now.
City manager mike price says councilors debated continuing to allow residents to use soaker hoses to prevent house foundation problems, but in the end said the shortage was too critical even for that.
City officials say anyone found watering outside for any reason will pay for it.
"The city council has instructed the municipal judge that there's no tolerance and they're gonna get a fine and it's a hefty fine," says Mike Price, Iowa Park city manager.
Mike Price says the fine ranges from $200 to $2,000.
In addition to fines, residents will also pay a surcharge for using more than 8,000 gallons of water per month.
Price says the surcharge is $40 once more than 8,000 gallons are used.
It's $75 for 10,000 gallons or more, $100 for 12,000 gallons or more and $250 for 15,000 gallons or more.
Officials say those additional charges will not be seen until the next billing cycle, giving residents a chance to adjust their water use habits.
And as we told you last night, Burkburnett also voted in new restrictions last night that take effect Monday but Burk Commissioners did allow the use of soaker hoses for foundations.
