District Reverts Back to Stage 1 of Drought Plan – Voluntary Measures

The North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) has rescinded Stage 2 of its  Drought Contingency Plan and has reverted back to Stage 1 voluntary water restrictions. Accordingly, Harris County MUD 286 (MUD 286) has also reverted back to Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan. Should drought conditions worsen, the NHCRWA and MUD 286 may again require mandatory water use restrictions. Effective immediately, the following voluntary water use restrictions are in place:

  • Voluntary Water Use Restrictions Applicable to Customers. Customers and those responsible for watering common areas such as esplanades and sports fields are requested to voluntarily limit the irrigation of landscaped and other areas and to irrigate said areas only between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on the following days:
  • Customers with even numbered addresses: Thursdays and Sundays
  • Customers with odd numbered addresses: Wednesdays and Saturdays
  • Customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue non-essential water uses such as vehicle washing, power washing or spraying down surfaces (other than for fire protection), gutter flushing, and refilling swimming pools, hot tubs or aesthetic fountains (except those that support aquatic life).
  • Customers are encouraged to check for and repair all leaks, dripping faucets, and running toilets.

Thank you for your cooperation – Customers will be notified when these restrictions are no longer required or if conditions warrant additional conservation measures.
