League City removes mandatory water restrictions
League City has removed mandatory water restrictions and is now in stage one of the Drought Contingency Plan.
“Although the city experienced heavy rainfall recently, the entire state is still in a severe drought situation and conservation is still very necessary in League City,” said Rich Oller, acting city manager, in a press release. “We understand that all residents and businesses have been inconvenienced for the last several months due to water restrictions, however, these restrictions are necessary to maintain our water supply.”
Stage one calls for residents to voluntarily conserve water, and city officials are asking them to follow certain conservation guidelines:
From 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursday, houses with even numbered addresses can irrigate their landscaped areas and lawns. Residents with odd number addresses can irrigate during the same hours on Mondays and Wednesdays.
All sprinklers should be redirected to hit only grassed or landscaped areas so as to avoid hitting sidewalks and streets.
The use of water to wash cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles or other vehicles is discouraged, along with washing down sidewalks, driveways, decks, parking lots or any other hard surface area; buildings or structures that are not on fire; the flushing of gutters or permitting water to run or accumulate in gutters, curbs or streets from a hose or irrigation system; and in fountains or other scenic decorations.
The city is also recommending that residents and businesses should limit the filling of swimming pools, Jacuzzis and other devices, except during the off-peak hours for irrigation.
To report water leaks, call 311 during normal business hours or 281-554-1390 after hours.
