As a result of recent rains, outdoor water restrictions have been lifted for City utility customers. On Thursday, May 28, the Brazos River Authority (BRA) lifted all drought declarations for its system, which includes the City’s primary sources of water, Lake Georgetown and Stillhouse Hollow Lake.
Lake Georgetown is more than 100 percent full and Stillhouse Hollow is 98 percent full. Although lake levels are considerably higher now, customers should continue to use water wisely as drought conditions are likely to materialize again.
While the City is no longer in an official drought stage, customers are encouraged to continue water conservation efforts by using water efficiently and not wasting water. Wasting water (not repairing a leak, using an irrigation system that is leaking, broken or spraying into the street, etc.) is still prohibited.
Customers are strongly encouraged to follow the City’s outdoor watering schedule and avoid watering between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Outdoor watering schedule
- Odd Numbered Addresses – Wednesday and/or Saturday
- Even Numbered Addresses – Thursday and/or Sunday
- Commercial/Multifamily – Tuesday and/or Friday
