Nacogdoches Could Enact Mandatory Watering Restrictions

September didn’t bring much relief, and October has started off dry as well.

We desperately need the rain, (understatement of the year), but forecasters are holding out much short term optimism.

With that being said, the City of Nacogdoches which is already asking residents to follow a voluntary water rationing system may have to go to more stern measures.  Excerpts from today’s press release follows the jump.

Researchers are predicting that Texas’ drought conditions could quite possibly become the new “worst” drought conditions in our history. Carolyn Brittin, Texas Water Development Board, states that “If we run into a drought of record today,” similarly or worse of the drought of the 1950’s, “we don’t have enough water to meet our demands.” Nacogdoches City Council enacted two-day a week voluntary watering restrictions in mid-august, however since that time usage numbers for the city as a whole have unfortunately increased.

Currently the voluntary water restrictions encourage residents to follow a strict watering schedule for lawn irrigation, limiting sprinklers and lawn irrigation to only two days a week. However, if City Council chooses to enact the mandatory portion of the drought conservation plan, individuals can be cited and fined for not adhering to the restrictions.  Details on the watering schedule and on water conservation tips can be easily found by visiting
