Board Votes to Reinstate Stage 1 Watering Restrictions

At its board meeting on June 20th, the West Travis County Public Utility Board voted to move back to Stage 1 watering restrictions, due to the increased lake levels. This will allow customers to water two times per week between the hours of Midnight - 10 a.m. & 7 p.m. - Midnight on designated days  according to the schedule below:

      • Addresses ending in 0,1,2,3: Monday and Thursday
      • Addresses ending in 4,5,6:  Tuesday and Friday
      • Addresses ending in 7,8,9:  Wednesday and Saturday
      • Commercial customers (including HOAs):  Tuesday and Friday
      • No watering allowed on Sundays.
    • New landscapes require a variance if they need additional irrigation than the mandatory watering schedule.  

If more than 85 percent of plant capacity is used 3 days consecutively or if the LCRA moves back to Stage 2 restrictions based on lake levels, we will return to Stage 2 restrictions.

With the high temperatures, please continue to save water through the following methods:

  • Use water-efficient and drought-tolerant plants.
  • Add mulch to landscapes and compost to turf to help prevent water loss.
  • Cover swimming pools when not in use.
  • Reduce water waste inside the house by turning off water when it’s not needed.

Thank you for your cooperation to keep our water flowing!
