Watering Limit: Two Days per Week Starts Oct. 14, 2013

The City of Georgetown will limit outdoor watering to two days per week starting on Monday, October 14.

Based on a request from the Brazos River Authority on October 2, 2013, water utilities that rely on Lake Georgetown will enact phase 1 of their Drought Contingency Plan on October 14, 2013. Those four water utilities—City of Georgetown, City of Round Rock, Chisholm Trail SUD, and Brushy Creek MUD—will enact a two-day-per-week watering limit.

The following water use limits will go into effect on Monday, October 14, 2013 for City of Georgetown water customers.
