City of Buda Lifts Stage 1 Drought Restrictions

Water Hose

The City had enacted Stage 1 at the end of 2015 through 2016 to reduce demand on the water distribution system during the completion of the Interim Water Improvements project and the construction of Well No. 5 at the Garlic Creek pump station.

Both projects are now complete and in operation allowing Stage 1 restrictions to be lifted. However, the City encourages citizens to be good stewards of natural resources and practice water conservation year round. 

Although Stage 1 Drought Restrictions are lifted, there is a water conservation ordinance in place year-round.

While you can water any day of the week, irrigation with hose-end sprinklers and automatic sprinkler systems is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Irrigation with hand-held bucket, hand-held hose, soaker hose and drip irrigation systems is allowed on any day and at any time. Irrigation of golf course, athletic fields and commercial nurseries with sprinklers is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

We will continue to evaluate hydrologic and system conditions and will reinstate drought restrictions if a drought declaration is made by the Barton Springs-Edwards Aquifer Conservation District (BSEACD) or if warranted by the City’s conservation ordinance. For more information on current drought conditions for our area, please visit the BSEACD website at: www.bseacd.org

We've included additional information on water conservation tips and meters and billing in the link below.
