NHCRWA Implements Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency Plan Effective 8/16/23
Due to the issues at the City of Houston’s NEWPP, the Authority is experiencing difficulties in meeting the high demand under the extreme weather conditions. The Authority is implementing Stage 1 of our Drought Contingency Plan immediately. The Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan request that any customer receiving water from the
Authority or well owner whose well is included under the Authority’s
Harris-Galveston Subsidence District aggregate water well permit:
Check for and repair all leaks, dripping faucets, and running toilets.
Utilize water conservation measures such as displacement bags, low-flow shower heads and leak detection tablets. Additional water conservation tips can be found at irrygator.com;
Limit irrigation to no more than two days per week, between 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. following the schedules below:
Sundays and Thursdays for single family residential customers with even-numbered street addresses.
Saturdays and Wednesdays for single family residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses.
Tuesdays and Fridays for all other customers.
No watering on Mondays.
Compliance to the above recommendations is voluntary.
