EL PASO— With the change in seasons comes other changes, and the Sun City will begin its water restrictions here soon.

The time-of-day watering schedule for outdoor irrigation goes into effect on Friday. From April 1 through September 30, watering is now only permitted before 10:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. on designated days.

Properties with addresses that end in even numbers may be watered Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays. Watering days for properties with addresses ending in odd numbers are Wednesdays, Fridays, or Sundays. Mondays, Wednesday, or Fridays are watering days for parks, schools, cemeteries, golf courses, and industrial sites.

Water wasting is a violation as outlined in the city's water conservation ordinance. Failure to comply is a Class C misdemeanor that can result in fines of up to $500.00 plus court costs.

Well if the city is going to inforce water restrictions what about these Fort Bliss soldiers wifes that do laundry everyday.
I'm not kiddin either, I have a couple that lives directly above me and they do laundry everyday about five to seven loads aday.
My gosh at first I was wondering, dont El Paso have some sort of water restriction because washing laundry everyday is just as bad as wasting water unless she is washing all of the Armys laundry over at Fort Bliss, I live under a laundro matt.

Please get over yourself.Do you know what soldiers wear every day? Plus if you have a family, that means more laundry. Soldiers have pt and work uniforms every day. Add in 2 kids, and a spouse..that's a lot of laundry. Babies go through many clothes, bibs, and burp cloths a day. Little kids makes messes. Spouses change clothes because they get baby spit up on them. Do you know you are supposed to sort your laundry's colors? Maybe they have a baby and use cloth diapers.Move if you don't like it.

If we go by your rational, we should close down all the laundromats in town and car washes too. There is going to be a lot more soldiers coming to El Paso and they are going to be coming home with all the uniforms that have to get that good old dust and sand off. You might as well get used to it or move to a city where the military and their families does not bother your daily life. Hey, there's a city right across the border with your name on it...
