The Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) announced plans today to implement Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan starting June 3. This will include the City of Mansfield.
With the system’s capacity hovering at 75 percent and the persistent drought conditions in North Texas, TRWD is asking its customers to begin conserving water until conditions improve.
In an effort to reduce outdoor watering, residential customers will follow a twice a week watering schedule based on their address. Residents whose addresses end in odd numbers (1,3,5,7 or 9) will be permitted to only water lawns and landscapes with sprinklers on Sundays and Thursdays. Residents who addresses end with even numbers (2,4,6 and 8) may only water on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Non-residential customers including apartments, businesses, parks and common areas may only water on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Watering by hand, soaker hoses and drip irrigation is allowed at any time of the day of the week. The time of day restriction which prohibits watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. will remain in effect. Officials also discourage residents from hosing paved areas and encourage them to reduce the frequency of draining and filling swimming pools.
This is the second time the TRWD, which serves 1.8 million people in 11 North Texas counties, has implemented watering restrictions based on storage capacity.

Severe Weather Information
The City of Mansfield Emergency Management Office is encouraging residents during this severe weather season to register for the city’s Code Red emergency notification system. Residents may register phone numbers to be called during specific weather events including tornado warnings, severe thunderstorm warnings and flash flood warnings. You can elect to receive one, two or all three warnings.
Registration is free. Visit the webpage here for more information. Another good way to stay informed is with a NOAA All Hazards Radio. These can be purchased from most major retailers for about $30. They may be programmed for emergencies in selected counties.

Cannon Drive at Miller Road east to East Broad Street will be closed to through traffic starting Monday Crews will close a section of Cannon Drive near The Lakes of Creekwood until June as part of the Cannon Drive realignment project.

ReportIt is a free, secure online service allowing citizens to record serial numbers and upload images for phones, electronics, and other valuables. Should the citizen later become a victim of theft or burglary, this information will go a long way in allowing the police department to accurately and quickly identify the property, as well as allowing the citizen to make a complete report to an insurance provider.
The ReportIt service is a part of LeadsOnline, the online system that works with police across the country to track and recover stolen property, which is based in Dallas, TX. The MPD uses LeadsOnline on a daily basis to help track and recover stolen property ---- everything from jewelry to sporting equipment to electronics, computers, cameras, and other items such as designer clothing, collectibles, and other items with invaluable personal worth. The system allows detectives to search for stolen items using a variety of parameters, including item descriptions and serial numbers.
The LeadsOnline database includes product information that is entered automatically whenever an item is sold to a pawn or secondhand shop. This information is immediately viewable by participating law enforcement agencies across the country. The MPD was a charter member with LeadsOnline and pays a yearly fee in order to access this database which has been invaluable in solving numerous crimes since its inception.
LeadsOnline is now making the ReportIt service available at no cost to the citizens of their member cities. Any Mansfield citizen can now register for the free service at reportit.leadsonline.com and immediately begin building their personal property inventory list. Citizens can store an unlimited number of serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and scans of receipts so that items can be more easily identified in the event of theft. The extent in which a detective can search for a stolen item is always limited to the description and information about the missing product that the citizen can provide.
None of the information entered by a citizen will be available or viewed by any other citizen or any police agency, and it will not become part of LeadsOnline database for searches. It is simply a safe secure online site for a citizen to create a list to keep track of their property. If the citizen were to sustain a loss, the citizen could then print the list and make it available to the police and or insurance provider. Likewise, citizens will not have access to the LeadsOnline system used by the police.Posted on 02/06/13
The City of Mansfield has adopted new construction standards for all new wood privacy fences and existing wood privacy fences undergoing replacement or repair. Among the new standards now is place:
- A fence permit is required and must be obtained prior to construction of the new or replacement fence 5 feet in height or greater.
