This. I’m on well water, and I have a 500-gallon cistern between the well and the house. Over time, the well pump fills up the cistern when water is available in the well, and a pump in the cistern provides water to the house. I’ve never run dry.
We had the same issue. We got rid of the tank and discharge water directly to a garden hose and sprinkler system. We installed a motor amp draw switch that has a timer. The switch senses motor amps and shuts the submersible pump off when the well bore runs out of water. In our case that was 15 to 20 minutes. You set the timer to delay motor restart to give well bore time to refil. Figuring out the wait time is a hassle but when you figure it out your watering system is taken care of. Our well refils in 30 minutes.
There is as well a few areas up there with little to no water. In and around Mustang is a area of little to no water.
This.Or just stop watering the yard!
All the yards around me have pretty much gone dormant by now, & will come back in the spring.
The only yard that gets watered around me in on the city property.
I cannot understand watering grass, so you can mow it.
Fresh water is the single most precious resource on the planet. Why dump it out on the ground?
I could understand if the irrigation was going to crops of some sort; a garden perhaps. Just for grass? that's city thinking, IMHO.
