Stage 1 of the City’s water management plan will become effective on September 23, 2006. The landscape watering days and times for automatic irrigation or hose-end sprinklers during Stage 1 for street addresses ending in an odd number are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday and for street addresses ending in an even number are Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 6 am – 8 am and 7 pm – 9 pm.
On September 14, 2006, the South Texas Watermaster lifted surface water curtailments because of the increased flow of the upper reaches of the Guadalupe River. In addition, the City has recently completed a 1 million gallon per day expansion of the water treatment plant. The combination of both events allows the City to resume injection of treated surface water into the Aquifer Storage and Recovery System and to return to Stage 1 Water Conservation Conditions. It is imperative that water customers keep non-essential uses of water to a minimum to conserve water allowing for maximum injection rates of surface water into the aquifer for future drought conditions.
Failure to comply with the water conservation measures currently in effect is a violation of chapter 110, article III of the Kerrville City Code and, upon conviction, may result in a fine of not less than $50.00 nor more than $2,000.00 per offense plus court costs. Repeated violations may also result in disconnection of water service. Please contact the City of Kerrville Public Works Department at (830) 792-8319 for further information
