Round Rock looking at drought plan Thursday

ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — City leaders in Round Rock are looking to clarify their Drought Contingency Plan on Thursday, just in case they have to increase watering restrictions. In their current Stage 1, neighbors are allowed to water their lawns up to twice a week.

The city is now looking at tweaking rules for Stage 2 to spread out water usage. It would include the combined storage of water of Lake Georgetown and Lake Stillhouse Hollow.

Specifics of the proposed changes

For example, an odd numbered home with an automatic sprinkler system would water on Wednesday and people without an automatic sprinkler system would water on Saturday. People living in even numbered homes with a sprinkler system will water on Thursday, and those without a watering system would water on Sundays.

People would only be able to refill their pools based on what their water schedule. The new change would also allow water fountains that recirculate water to operate during Stage I, but they would not be allowed in Stage II.
