Stage 1 Drought Contingency Measures In Effect
Posted: Monday, August 15, 2011

Friday (August 12) the City of Shoreacres put into place voluntary water restrictions under the city's drought contingency plan. A formal notice informing citizens that the City has declared a Stage 1 “Mild Conditions” drought contingency alert has been issued. The city is calling for a voluntary reduction in water usage by residents and business owners. The City requests that all residential and commercial users reduce their water consumption where possible and to restrict their lawn watering to every other day between the hours of 6 – 10 a.m. and 8 – 10 p.m.

The combined City of La Porte, City of Shoreacres, and the City of Morgan’s Point water consumption is just over the La Porte Area Water Authority (LPAWA) Stage 1 alert threshold. The process for the Stage 1 “Mild Conditions” alert is outlined in the City’s Drought Contingency Plan.

For additional information please call the City of Shoreacres at 281.471.2244.
