Issue: Water Restrictions

Affects: Those who build pools and spas

Send comments to: Jennifer Hatfield, jhatfield@apsp.org

Summary: Lampasas City received notice from the Brazos River Authority (BRA) to implement Phase I of the Drought Contingency Plan for the Brazos River Valley. As a result, the City is implementing Phase I of its Water Conservation Plan. While the Drought Contingency Plan is in effect, water customers are requested to continue to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential or discretionary purposes.  Discretionary uses include landscape irrigation, car washing, swimming pools, building/driveway cleaning, ornamental ponds or fountains and dust control.  

Important to APSP members, it is not until Stage 3 of the Drought Contingency Plan that swimming pools are affected but we strongly encourage members to monitor this situation and discuss any concerns with their local officials. APSP can also provide water conservation information related to pools & spas.. 

Status: Announcement was made July 20, 2018.
