Ask Anthony… Water Restrictions

Hi Karen,

I don’t make those decisions, but, with the weather pattern unchanged possibly for the next two months, I don’t think we are too far away from seeing the cities in southeast Texas asking residents to conserve. It will probably start voluntary, like what we are seeing in Galveston County. The longer the drought lasts, the more restrictions we’ll see. I grew up in a desert, and almost every summer the city would have DON’T water the lawn days. If the drought was bad enough, the resident could be fined if they watered on what was called a “red” water day. Specifically, the city of Houston has ample water supplies and won’t impose any restrictions in the near future but if this drought continues I would expect to see some sort of restrictions put into place.
