The City of Kerrville announced Tuesday it is moving to Stage 1 Moderate Water Conservation measures effective 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, August 17, due to continuing drought conditions. According to city officials, the new measures will hopefully help further reduce demand and conserve water resources for critical potable uses if the drought persists.
The watering schedule for Stage 1 allows for landscape and lawn watering with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems from 6-10 a.m. and 8 p.m.-12 a.m. on Wednesday and Sunday for street addresses whose last digit ends in an even number.
Residents who have street addresses ending in an odd number can plan their watering schedules from 6-10 a.m. and 8 p.m.-12 a.m. on Tuesday and Saturday.
Stage 1 measures do not affect the city’s reuse water customers, which include three area golf courses, the Sports Complex, and the Tivy High School and Schreiner University athletic fields.
Stage 1 Moderate Water Conservation measures will remain in effect until further notice, but likely will continue throughout the month of August. The City of Kerrville Water Management Plan can be found on the city’s website at https://www.kerrvilletx.gov/512/Water-Restrictions.
