Protecting the Four P’s: Essential Tips for Dealing with Texas Winter Weather

Winter weather and freezing temperatures are expected across Texas. In such conditions, it is imperative to protect the “Four P’s”: People, pets, pipes and plants.

People:

  • Keep warm and stay inside, if possible.
  • If you need to go outside, dress in layers and wear hats, gloves and an appropriate coat.
  • Avoid over exertion, as cold weather puts added strain on your body.

Pets:

  • Bring pets inside, and move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas.
  • Keep adequate food and water available.

Pipes:

  • Disconnect outdoor hoses, then drain and store in a protected area.
  • Wrap exposed faucets and pipes – including those outside the house or in unheated crawlspaces, attics, garages and other areas.

Plants:

  • Bring potted plants inside or store in garage near interior wall to provide extra warmth and protection from wind.
  • For cold-sensitive outdoor plants, put down extra mulch and consider covering with a cloth fabric of some kind to shield the plants from wind and frost.

Additionally, if you have an irrigation system, turn off the water to the system at your backflow preventer and then drain the system so your irrigation pipes and sprinkler heads are not damaged.

As it pertains to the dripping of faucets, we are asking and advising our residents and customers NOT to drip their faucets. This could cause a dip in water pressure at your facility. If you reside within the greater Houston area and are part of the Regional Water Authorities (West Harris County Regional Water Authority, North Fort Bend Regional Water Authority, North Harris County Regional Water Authority), or receive water from the City of Houston, dripping faucets will put a strain on the system resulting in low pressure or even depleting the water system.

Stage 1 – Mild Drought

Dear Residents:

Cypress Creek Lakes MUDs have been notified by West Harris County Regional Water Authority (WHCRWA) that Cypress Creek Lakes (CCL), as well as all subdivisions within their boundaries, will have a limited supply of surface water allocated during the peak demand periods.

In the event of Mild Drought Conditions, we ask residents to voluntarily reduce outdoor water usage as follows:

Residents and other users with even-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on even-numbered days and residents and other users of water with odd-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days. In the event no street address exists, only District residents and other users of water within the District living on the north and west side of a street may use water outdoors on even-numbered days and only District residents and other users of water within the District on the south and east side of a street may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days.

Outdoor water use shall be prohibited between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight).

With these water restrictions, it is imperative, that we are mindfully conservative as a community to reduce the use of water during these peak demand periods.

The bulk of water consumption in CCL is for irrigation and other outdoor uses. Please ensure that your irrigation systems are leak free.

If you see a water leak anywhere in our subdivision please report it immediately. You may call Inframark 24 hours a day at 281-398-8211.

The irrigation of the flowers and grass in the common areas around the subdivision is supplied by the retention lakes. This non-potable water does not count towards our WHCRWA allocation.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
