Drought Contingency Update - Stage 1

Oct 10, 2023

Harris County WCID No. 119 has rescinded Stage 2 of its Drought Contingency Plan and has reverted back to Stage 1 of the plan. Under this plan, customers are requested to voluntarily reduce water consumption by adhering to the following guidelines:

  1. Repair detectible water leaks within 72 hours of discovery;
  2. Utilize water conservation measures such as displacement bags, low-flow shower heads and leak detection tablets;
  3. Limit outdoor irrigation to the hours 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. of the following day, on no more than two (2) days per week, in conformity with the following schedule (no watering on Mondays):
    • Sundays and Thursdays for single-family residential customers with even-numbered street addresses
    • Saturdays and Wednesdays for single-family residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses; and
    • Tuesdays and Fridays for all other customers

Compliance with the above requirements is voluntary.

This plan will remain in effect until notice is given that it has been rescinded, or it may be replaced by a more stringent plan if water shortage conditions worsen. Please check our website for updates to this situation at wdmtexas.com or call Water District Management at 281-376-8802.
