Rosenberg Initiates Stage 1 of Drought Contingency Plan and Asks for Voluntary Water Conservation From Residents
Stage 1 of the drought management plan urges residents to voluntarily reduce the use of water for non-essential purposes to reach the goal of decreasing the demand for water city-wide by five percent (5%).
Under Stage 1 of the plan, citizens are asked to voluntarily reduce the amount of water they are consuming for irrigation purposes:
Residents with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) are asked to limit watering to Sundays and Thursdays between the hours of midnight to 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to midnight.
Residents with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) are asked to limit watering to Saturdays and Wednesdays between the hours of midnight to 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to midnight.
When irrigating your lawn, check sprinkler heads to make sure water is not spraying into the street or directly into a storm drain and/or gutters.
