Notice of Withdrawal of Stage 2 Drought Conditions and Reinitiation of Stage 1 Drought Conditions

Please be advised that effective October 11, 2023, the West Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Authority”) withdrew implementation of Stage 2 of its Drought Contingency Plan and reinitiated implementation of Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan.

Under Stage 1, the Authority continues to request all water users to voluntarily reduce their water usage. The Authority will continue to monitor water use and will provide another notice if the drought stage changes or if Stage 1 drought conditions have been lifted. Please keep in mind that, despite the recent cooler and wetter conditions, drought conditions remain in the Houston region.

Thank you for your cooperation. Drought conditions impact all of us. Please stay informed, use common sense, and avoid wasting water.
