We have important updates concerning water usage and conservation efforts in our community. The North Harris County Regional Water Authority (NHCRWA) has recently announced a downgrade from Stage 2 to Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plan, a proactive response thanks to the concerted efforts and cooperation of residents and local authorities in managing water resources.
In light of this development, we’re pleased to inform you that Municipal Utility District 365 (MUD 365) is following suit by transitioning its water conservation measures from mandatory to voluntary. This change is a direct result of the community’s diligent adherence to water restrictions, combined with favorable conditions that have alleviated the immediate stress on our water supply.
However, it’s important to note that while Stage 1 restrictions are voluntary, the need for mindful water consumption remains. We continue to encourage all MUD 365 residents to practice sensible water use, which includes:
- Watering lawns and landscapes no more than two days per week, and doing so before 6:00 am or after 8:00 pm.
- Fixing any water leaks within the household promptly.
- Using water-efficient appliances and fixtures whenever possible.
- Avoiding non-essential water use, especially during peak usage hours.
Remember, every drop counts! Our community’s conscious efforts in water conservation not only help in managing our current resources but also contribute to the sustainability of our environment for generations to come.
We sincerely appreciate your ongoing cooperation and commitment to water conservation. Please stay informed and continue to follow updates on water usage guidelines from NHCRWA and MUD 365. Together, we are making a difference!
Thank you for playing a vital part in preserving our most precious resource!
