COH enters Stage 1 of Drought Contingency Plan 6/21/22
 
Loading Image...
 
The City of Houston will enter Stage One of the City's Drought Contingency Plan, effective Tuesday June 21, 2022. The Drought Contingency Plan calls for Stage One water conservation measures when there is an observed drop in annual rainfall amounts and higher-than-normal daily temperatures.
 
During the past month, the City of Houston has had record-setting high temperatures above 90 degrees and a significant decrease in rainfall. As a result, most of Houston’s service area is experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions. These conditions call for implementation of Stage One water conservation measures.
 
Stage One drought response calls for the following voluntary water conservation efforts:
 
Limit outdoor watering to twice a week between the hours of 7PM and 5AM with the following schedule:
 
Sundays & Thursdays: single-family residential customers with even-numbered street addresses
Saturdays and Wednesdays: single-family residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses
Tuesdays and Fridays: all other customers
 
Water customers are also reminded to continue everyday efforts to prevent the loss of water including:
 
Check & repair water leaks, including dripping faucets & running toilets.
Check sprinkler heads to make sure water is not spraying into street or directly into a storm drain and/or gutters .
 
These voluntary efforts will help Houston reduce water use by 5%. The public will be notified when Stage One water conservation measures have been lifted.

Or they could just fix all the faulty city pipes through Houston. Just right there we could save a ton of water,

@TownHubAdmin: watch out for letters from you HOA. They hit hard during the last drought, the HOA, that is.

My poor yard is parched, I'm doing my part to conserve. But may have to result in watering if it doesn't get a drink soon. Can't afford to lose the entire yard of grass.
Only the strong survive 😀

@Gammyof2: I already received an oops letter this week complaining that my yard needs grass. Not really sure what that means since my yard is covered in grass but if the HOA isn't happy now just wait because it's only going to get worse. I'm not wasting my money to plant grass at the beginning of what is going to be a record setting hot dry summer.

@FluffyCat : they will ask for a written plan of action, mine in the past has been....when it rains again, I will worry about the grass in my yard. I cannot afford COH water bills higher than my electric bill.....never got another letter.

I was just thinking about this the other day. Wondering when it would happen. Maybe I should try for the winning lotto number!

@cbear : I think a lot of us were wondering the same thing. It was bound to happen. So glad I watered early this morning.

Kids in Cedar Park and north Austin have had that kind of schedule for years, all the time. Stinks. Their yards really look bad in hot dry weather.

Remember foundation problems yall. The expense of having to deal with that is something to avoid. Dh and I literally just had a conversation about shifting foundation just this morning. Far better to pay higher water bills for a year than thousands in foundation issues. That said - this is the most sun our yard sees in a day during summer. It's late afternoon sun, so that's an advantage, shown reflects twice a week 30 minute watering.

@Ruger5 : I have soaker hoses buried around the perimeter of my house that I put down in 2011 for that very reason. I need to hook them up again and use them on my watering days.
