AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Water is considering making permanent restrictions to watering schedules following the severe Texas drought.
The changes would mean Austinites could only water once-a-week. As this proposal moves into the hands of the City Council, Austin Water asks for the community’s feedback on the restrictions.
These restrictions played a key role in keeping Highland Lake levels from dropping to emergency levels during the peak drought days, according to Austin Water.
You have a chance to voice your opinion at the Open House Meetings throughout January. The meetings run between 6-8 p.m.
