Notice of Stage 1 Drought Conditions

Please be advised that the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (Authority) has triggered Stage 1 (voluntary reductions) of its Drought Contingency Plan due to climate and weather conditions. The Authority has determined it is necessary to trigger Stage 1 in order to facilitate compliance with the Harris Galveston Subsidence District requirements.

Under this Stage 1, the Authority is requesting all water users to voluntarily reduce their water usage effective immediately. The Authority would also like to encourage you to consider implementing one or more drought response measures in your entity’s Drought Contingency Plan, if applicable. The Authority will continue to monitor water use and will provide another notice if the drought stage changes or if Stage 1 drought conditions have been lifted.

Thank you for your cooperation. A copy of the Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan is included on the Authority’s website:
