On Monday, June 20, Tomball entered Stage 1 Mild Drought Conditions as specified by the City of Tomball’s Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan.

 

“We encourage all residents and businesses to begin practicing voluntary conservation strategies,” said Assistant City Manager Jessica Rogers. “This will help our region to maintain a strong, resilient water supply system for continued local use and adequate fire protection during this hot and dry weather.”

 

The City’s Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan specifies water conservation requirements in stages according to daily demand and production capacity. A Stage 1 Mild Drought Condition is triggered when the total daily water supply demand exceeds 60% of production capacity for three consecutive days.

 

In response to the new drought condition, the City aims to reduce daily water demand by 10% through public education and the implementation of conservation measures across City operations, including reducing waterline flushing and observing the Stage 2 mandatory limited watering.
