Due to the lack of rainfall and the increased temperatures, Corix Utilities (Texas) is moving to Stage 2 in our Drought Contingency Plan that was approved on April 30, 2019.
When combined storage in Lake Buchanan and Lake Travis falls below 1.4 million acre-feet our Drought Contingency Plan dictates, we enter Stage 2. LCRA announced this event will occur in the coming weeks. The Central Texas Groundwater Conservation District in Burnet County and the Blanco-Pedernales Groundwater Conservation District in Blanco County have both instigated their Drought Contingency Plans at this time.
What Stage 2 Requirements mean for Corix Customers
- You must repair a controllable leak, including a broken sprinkler head, a leaking valve, leaking or broken pipes, or a leaking faucet.
- You should not operate an irrigation system with:
- A broken head
- A head that is out of adjustment and the arc of the spray is over a street or parking area, or
- A head that is fogging or misting because of excessive water pressure, or
- During irrigation you should not allow water:
- To run off property and form a stream of water in a street, or
- To pool in a street or parking lot.
Despite recent rains, our area remains in severe drought. For more information on Water Conservation and tips to reduce water use, please visit our website at:
