Water My Yard 
Automatic irrigation systems often are improperly programmed and can lead to overwatering. LCRA has partnered with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to offer the free Water My Yard program, which provides recommendations on how long to run irrigation systems efficiently while maintaining healthy lawns.

The program uses a home or business address, irrigation system information and local weather information to recommend outdoor irrigation runtimes for specific neighborhoods. By filling out a simple online form, residents and business owners can receive weekly email or text message updates on optimal watering times for their specific neighborhoods.
