City to implement mandatory water rationing
ON MONDAY, March 23, League City will enact stage 2 of its drought contingency plan.
The city will implement mandatory water rationing in order to make emergency repairs on the main water supply line from the Southeast Water Purification Plant to the city of League City.
This is the primary transmission line that supplies the majority of League City’s available surface water supply and it also serves neighboring communities.
During that time, water will be rerouted to the city through a water line with less capacity and at reduced pressure and volume. During the two to five weeks that it will take for the city to complete the repairs, there will be less water available and citizens will need to conserve water usage to maintain essential needs and to ensure regulatory compliant delivery and maintain fire-fighting capabilities.
During stage two restrictions, the city mandates outdoor watering and usage limitations and residential water customers will need to limit the watering of landscaped areas to Mondays and Thursdays for customers with even-numbered street addresses, and Tuesdays and Fridays for residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses, and is limited to the Daylight Saving Time hours of 10:00am until 2:00pm and 10:00pm until 4:00am the following morning or during Standard Time between the hours of 10:00am until 4:00pm and 10:00pm until 4:00am the following morning, on designated watering days.
