Updated Drought Plan


July 26, 2019
UPDATE ON DROUGHT MANAGEMENT PLAN
Unusual rain events have kept the Highland Lakes in full condition into the summer. Several residents are still rebuilding after the October 2018 floods. While Kingsland Water Supply Corporation (KWSC) has been able to return to normal operations following the flood, we still realize that water conservation efforts need to continue into the future. Currently, there are no restrictions in place for our service area and we suggest voluntary conservation efforts by our members. Please check with our office on details of water conservation rebate opportunities for homeowners through the Lower Colorado River Authority.
Please insure your lawn watering efforts are as effective as possible. Check your sprinklers often to insure there are no broken sprinkler devices or water that is being wasted by running off down streets, sidewalks or off of your property. Daytime watering is discouraged as much of that water will evaporate prior to irrigating the intended area. It is suggested to follow the following watering schedule for the most effective results:
1. Businesses, Churches, apartments, duplexes, or multifamily dwellings irrigation schedule is on Monday and Friday between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 10:00 a.m. and between 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight. Hand watering with a hose is allowed anytime.
2. Residential with a physical address ending in an even number watering schedule is only on Tuesday and Saturday between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 10:00 a.m. and between 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight. Hand watering with a hose is allowed anytime.
3. Residential with a physical address ending in an odd number watering schedule is only on Wednesday and Sunday between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 10:00 a.m. and between 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight. Hand watering with a hose is allowed anytime.
4. No irrigation between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7 p.m.
5. Irrigation should be monitored to avoid run-off on the pavement, sidewalk or adjacent property.
Kingsland Waster Supply Corporation will be monitoring area lake levels and will enact measures following our Drought Contingency plan as needed
