Please be advised that the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (Authority) has triggered Stage 1 (voluntary reductions) of its Drought Contingency Plan due to climate and weather conditions. The Authority has determined it is necessary to trigger Stage 1 in order to facilitate compliance with the Harris Galveston Subsidence District requirements.
Under this Stage 1, the Authority is requesting all water users to voluntarily reduce their water usage effective immediately. The Authority would also like to encourage you to consider implementing one or more drought response measures in your entity’s Drought Contingency Plan, if applicable. The Authority will continue to monitor water use and will provide another notice if the drought stage changes or if Stage 1 drought conditions have been lifted.
In order to conserve water during current drought conditions, the City of Houston and the West Harris County Regional Water Authority have implemented Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan. During this stage, the Harris County MUD No. 46 Board of Directors is requesting that all residents of the District take the following voluntary measures:
- Check for and repair all leaks, dripping faucets, and running toilets.
- Check sprinkler heads to make sure that water is not spraying into the street or directly into a storm drain.
- Utilize water conservation measures such as displacement bags, low-flow shower heads, and leak detection tablets.
- Limit irrigation to no more than two (2) days per week, between 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
Thank you for your cooperation. A copy of the Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan is included on the Authority’s website: www.whcrwa.com.
