Fraud Alert: Mail Forward and Phone ID Theft Scams

Town Staff and the Fairview Police Department have been made aware of several cases of identity theft occurring to residents of Heritage Ranch, as was also reported locally on WFAA. In the case of this particular scam, the crooks used the U.S. Postal Service’s online Official USPS Change of Address form to forward the victim’s mail to an alternate location. Learn more about this scam and how to protect yourself in this article.


Mosquito Preparedness

As we enjoy fun outdoor activities, we should all be taking steps to protect against West Nile, Zika and other mosquito-borne illnesses. A rainy yet hot spring can especially increase the mosquito population. To combat illnesses, Fairview citizens should be observant of their surroundings and take advantage of educational resources to learn more about these diseases and the preventative measures that can be taken to try to mitigate contraction.

Watering Restrictions

Watering Restrictions





Water Conservation  

Even though the Town of Fairview isn't currently under drought restrictions the town’s Water Conservation Plan remains in effect, Lawn and landscape watering is restricted to twice per week, Town of Fairview water customers can choose which day(s) they wish to irrigate.

The Town of Fairview Water Conservation Plan calls for the following water restrictions:

  • Lawn irrigation watering is prohibited from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from April 1st to October 31st of each year.
  • Lawn and landscape irrigation limited to twice per week.
  • Watering of impervious surfaces is prohibited.
  • Outdoor watering during precipitation or freeze events is prohibited.
  • The use of treated water to fill or refill residential, amenity, and any other natural or manmade ponds is prohibited. A pond is considered to be a still body of water with a surface area of 500 square feet or more.
  • Rain and freeze sensors and/or ET or Smart controllers are required on all new irrigation systems. Rain and freeze sensors and/or ET or Smart controllers must be maintained to function properly.
  • “At home” car washing can be done only when using a water hose with a shut-off nozzle.
  • Watering areas that have been overseeded with cool season grasses is prohibited (such as rye grass or other similar grasses), except for golf courses and public athletic fields.

Below are a variety of tips that you might find helpful in your effort to conserve water:

•Repair leaks, running toilets, dripping faucets, and broken sprinkler heads.
•Water in the morning or evening when the temperatures are cooler.
•Plant native, drought tolerant plants that require less water.
•Adjust your lawn mower to at least one notch. A taller lawn holds more moisture.
•Water only when plants look like they need it. Most plants die from over-watering.
