City parks workers are busy also, not turning on water, but shutting off the irrigation systems in parks and cemeteries.
Workers started turning off the water irrigation systems at the park before stage four was announced in anticipation of the changes.
“We've been doing this all through the week and although we have hundreds of systems out there. We're pretty confident we will get all of them turned off on time for the advent Saturday of the stage four water restrictions,” says Wichita Falls Director of Parks and Recreation, Jack Murphy.
Murphy says even though the landscapes may be less colorful and the grass drier, turning off the irrigation systems should not affect park-goers too much, and the parks will keep their normal hours.
