The City of Austin has decided to lift the Stage 2 water restrictions and return to the stage 1 restrictions. This takes effect today July 16th 2012. The decision comes as a result of increased rainfall over the spring and early summer along with an improving outlook for rainfall in the future forecasts.
LCRA (Lower Colorado River Authority) has also made some adjustments in how the amount of water available to agricultural customers as well, decreasing the chance of dramatic water level changes in lake storage.
Returning to stage one restrictions allow all residents along with HOA and condo communities to water twice a week. Please see the watering schedule below for your designated days in which you are allowed to water. Please also note the specific times in which you are allowed to water as well.
