CITY OF BUDA DECLARES STAGE 1 WATER RESTRICTIONS Effective Monday, June 4, 2018
June 1, 2018 — Effective Monday, June 4, 2018, the City of Buda will return to Stage 1 water restrictions in accordance with the City’s adopted Water Resource Management and Drought Response Ordinance. So far in 2018, 11.73 inches of rain has fallen in Buda and 4 out of the first 5 months have been below average on rainfall. Over half of our year-to-date precipitation total occurred on a single day, March 28th, when 5.99 inches of rain fell. Due to the lack of consistent precipitation, and higher than normal demands on our water production system, the City of Buda has decided to enact Stage 1 water restrictions.
Stage 1 Water Allowances and Restrictions
Under Stage 1 restrictions, City of Buda water customers must abide by a twice-per-week outdoor irrigation schedule. Outdoor irrigation (automatic sprinklers and hose end sprinkler systems) is prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Odd-numbered residential addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday, while even-numbered residential addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday. Commercial, mixed-use and multifamily customers may water on Tuesday and/or Friday. It is recommended that outdoor watering be limited to one of the permitted water days each week in order to promote conservation.
Additional Stage 1 water allowances and restrictions are included below:
In addition, foundation watering is allowed on any day and at any time. However, it should not result in pooling or runoff onto impervious surfaces, adjacent property, draining facilities (natural or man made), sidewalks or streets.
Other nonessential water uses are allowed but all reasonable measures shall be taken to limit the use.
Anyone who violates this ordinance could be fined between $100 and $500.
You can report water violations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
