HIDDEN COVE, THE SHORES & RIVENDALE BY THE LAKE GENERAL INFORMATION
Let us take this opportunity to welcome you to the area. You may have moved from a larger city and will therefore experience the benefits as well as short comings of living in a smaller community. You should FIRST BE AWARE that you have a Frisco mailing address, but do not live in the City of Frisco. You live within a Fresh Water District in Denton County. The City of Hackberry provides your area with water/sewer/sanitation service ONLY.. Your fire protection is provided by the Frisco Fire Department. Your police protection is provided by Denton County, sometimes assisted by Little Elm and/or Frisco. Depending upon your actual location, you most likely live within the Little Elm School District. The postal service for this area is sometimes less than adequate, and the City of Hackberry has no control or influence over the U.S. Postal Service.
Hopefully, the following information will assist you in understanding the costs and services provided by the City of Hackberry.

Homeowners’ Irrigation Systems
The following information is provided to assist you in calculating your water usage. The data was provided by the builders and developer of your area.
There are 6 to 7 irrigation zones per house.
One zone sprays approximately 12-15 gallons per minute.
Most systems are set for 10 minutes per zone, per day at 3 days a week.
7 zones X 15 gallons = 105 gallons per minute
105 gallons per minute at 10 minutes per day = 1,050 gallons per day
1,050 gallons per day at 3 days per week = 3,150 gallons per week
3,150 gallons per week at 4 weeks per billing period = 12,600 gallons per month for irrigation only
