Water Restrictions – Stage 1
Pursuant to the authority conferred upon City Manager by Section 44-223 of the Round Rock Code of Ordinances, the City will implement Stage I Water Conservation Regulations effective at 12:01am on Friday, July 1st. This action was triggered by a request from the Brazos River Authority, the City’s wholesale water supplier, that the City implement its Stage I water conservation regulations due to the combined water volume of Lake Georgetown and Stillhouse Hollow Lake, as well as the developing drought conditions.
The City determined that this action is necessary to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. The Stage I water conservation regulations provide that outdoor watering is limited to twice per week as follows:
|Property Address ending numbers
|4 or 8
|Midnight to Noon
7pm to Midnight
|0 or 3
|2, 6, or 7
|1, 5, or 9
Pursuant to Section 44-233, the outdoor irrigation by hand-held hoses or hand-held buckets is permitted anytime. An offense of the Stage I Water Conservation Regulations is a class C misdemeanor that is punishable by a not-to-exceed fine of up to $2,000.
