IMPLEMENTATION OF STAGE 1 WATER RESTRICTIONS

The City of Blanco Public Water System, ID #0160002, has implemented "Stage 1" water restrictions to be effective as of June 4, 2018.  High temperatures and lack of rainfall have caused a higher demand for water use within our system  and the following rationing will aid in continual water service for the health and safety of the public.  The City of Blanco is currently purchasing treated water from CLWSC who initiated drought rationing on June 1st.  The provisions for Stage 1 restrictions for all City of Blanco water customers are as follows:

Voluntary Water Use Restrictions for Reducing Demand:

  1. Water customers are requested to voluntarily limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Sundays and Thursdays for customers with a street address ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8), and Saturdays and Wednesdays for water customers with a street address ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9), and to irrigate landscapes only between the hours of midnight and 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to midnight on designated water days.
  2. All operations of the City of Blanco shall adhere to water use restrictions prescribed for "Stage 2" of the approved Drought Management Plan.
  3. All water customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.

This restriction, by order of the Public Works Director, shall remain active until further notice, but no longer than 60 days.   Please visit www.cityofblanco.com to view the approved Drought Management Plan or call (830) 833-4525 for further information. 

I thank you all in advance for your cooperation and support!
