(FULSHEAR) - The City of Fulshear is moving to Stage 2 water conservation measures. Officials say the city is continuing to experience a high demand on all water systems due to extreme heat conditions and lack of rainfall.
“In issuing Stage 2 water conservation measures, we ask residents and businesses (excluding residents on their own water well system) to assist the city with conserving water,” officials said. “These measures are extremely important in helping to alleviate the high demand on the city’s systems and should help mitigate the fluctuations in water pressure. Stage 2 measures will hopefully help further reduce demand and conserve water resources for critical potable uses if the drought persists. Please help do your part and conserve wisely.”
Stage 2 is when total daily water demand equals or exceeds 65 percent of total water well pumpage.
Residents and businesses should follow the below:
Voluntary but strongly advise to halt watering and/or irrigation to once every five days
Voluntary but strongly advise change the irrigation schedule to outside high-demand hours which are 4 a.m. – 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Voluntary but strongly advise reduce water usage inside your home/business
The City of Fulshear will also assist in water conservation by:
Halting landscape irrigation at all city facilities
Halting nonessential vehicle washing
Halting the establishment of new landscaping
Limiting hydrant flushing (except for water system repairs)
Analyze the demand and offer alternative solutions to minimize usage
If drought conditions continue, the city will enact water conservation measures in accordance with the City’s Drought Contingency Plan (Stage III).
Anyone with questions should contact the city’s Utility Services Division at 281-346-8830 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
