Missouri City drought contingency implementation
Texas is experiencing widespread drought conditions. Forecasts for early 2013 include below normal rainfall and above normal temperatures. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has issued an Order requiring the implementation of certain water use restrictions, and, as a result, the Gulf Coast Water Authority has set a goal of 10 percent reduction in water use. As a result, effective December 28, 2012, the City of Missouri City has implemented the Stage 2 Response of its Drought Contingency Plan for its Surface Water Treatment Plant Utility Service Area. This is the area served by Sienna Plantation Municipal Utility Districts.
The current (time period) water supply reductions and corresponding demand restrictions are temporary in nature; however, the current end date is unknown.
The City in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Water authority will be monitoring usage and sharing information, and the City will be supplying notice and reports relating to the drought contingency plan to local and state authorities.
At this time, for residents of Sienna Plantation utility districts, please implement the water conservation measures specified by your utility provider. Typical water use restrictions include limitations on outdoor watering and at home washing of vehicles.
For more information, please contact your utility provider at the number on your water bill or you may contact the City for additional information at 281-403-8500.
