Lakeway MUD Board of Directors voted to move to Stage 1 Restrictions effective immediately during the Regular Board meeting Wednesday, June 10.
Stage 1 restrictions between May 1 and September 30 call for the same watering schedules as Stage 2, which is twice per week according to the following guidelines:
For Odd Street addresses, Wed and Sat are irrigation days.
For Even Street addresses, Thurs and Sun are irrigation days.
Commercial customers may irrigate on Tue and Fri.
Just as in Stage 2, no watering is allowed between 10AM and 7PM.
The Board stresses that even though our conditions have improved greatly, we are still only at 68% of our water storage capacity between Lake Travis and Lake Buchanan, and we are facing the beginning of another hot Texas summer. During the hot summer months, we can lose up to 2,000 Acre Feet per day from our storage.
The Board encourages all residents and businesses to continue the good water conservation habits we have all learned over the past few years.
Use Water Wisely!
When was the last time you thought about your water utility provider? In all likelihood, it was the last time you turned on a faucet and no water came out. Or, maybe it was the last time you paid your water bill. Perhaps it was the last time you had a leak and had to employ a plumber to fix the problem. If you are not thinking a lot about your water and wastewater provider, chances are they are doing a good job for you.
Lakeway Municipal Utility District (LMUD) provides Water, Wastewater, and/or Reuse Water to over 4,000 homes and businesses in the City of Lakeway. Depending on the season, anywhere from 2 to over 5 million gallons per day of fresh water are provided to our customers for drinking, bathing, irrigating, etc. With that kind of volume going to that many customers, it’s pretty amazing we don’t think about it more often!
Here are a few interesting facts about LMUD you may not be aware of:
So, the next time you turn on the faucet, you might remember that “you are in good hands” (to borrow a phrase!). All of us at LMUD understand that we work for you, and it is our goal to keep you pleased with and proud of Lakeway MUD, your water service provider. Please feel free to contact us via our website, email, or phone call should you have any questions or suggestions. And, thanks to all for the tremendous cooperation you have afforded us through these trying drought conditions.
