Missouri City Mandatory Water Conservation Rules Go into Effect

(MISSOURI CITY) – Due to worsening drought conditions, the City of Missouri City has implemented mandatory water conservation in some areas of the city.

These measures are being put into effect because the independent water systems in these areas are not able to keep up with demand, officials said.

Residents can view the Map of Affected Areas (PDF). If the area is in blue, it is under mandatory conservation. If it is in yellow, then it is under voluntary conservation.

For residents under mandatory conservation, lawn watering is limited to the following days and times: Residents with odd street numbers can water on Tuesdays and Saturdays, before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m. Residents with even street numbers can water their lawns on Wednesdays and Sundays, before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m.

Landscape irrigation is permitted at any time on designated days if it is by means of a hand-held hose, a faucet-filled bucket, or watering can of five gallons or less, or via a drip irrigation system.

Visit Water Conservation Address Finder App and type an address in the search bar in the upper right-hand corner to see whether that location is affected.

Pursuant to Missouri City Ordinance No. 0-21-30, violation of the mandatory conservation rules can bring misdemeanor charges and a fine of up to $500 per day.

The remainder of the city is strongly encouraged to voluntarily conserve water. If residents can limit water usage now, it will ensure the city maintains enough water for critical domestic, industrial, sanitation and fire protection usage. An inability to limit water usage could lead to more severe restrictions.
