Stage One Water Restrictions

The City is now under Stage One Water Restrictions as outlined in the City’s Drought Contingency Plan. Stage one restrictions are voluntary, but city officials do encourage all residents to conserve water to help avoid further restrictions. In addition to reducing non-essential water use, residents are also encouraged to conserve by making sure any water leaks or dripping faucets are fixed and in working order. The city’s drought contingency plan is designed to help conserve the city’s water supply and to protect the integrity of water supply facilities, to protect and preserve public health and welfare and minimize the adverse impacts of a water supply shortage. If the lake level continues to fall, the city will have to implement stage two restrictions at that time. State two restrictions will require mandatory watering scheduled and more stringent restrictions. For more information on the current water restrictions, please call 469-309-4322.
