Fort Bend County MUD 81: Mild Drought Conditions in Effect; drought response measures being implemented

11 08 2011

As the drought across the State of Texas continues, there is a growing necessity to conserve water.  Fort Bend County MUD 81 (City of Weston Lakes) has announced today that they are implementing the first stage of its drought contingency plan.  At this point, customers in the municipal utility district boundaries are asked to voluntarily reduct water use, except the following activities shall be mandatory and not voluntary:

  • All outdoor water usage, including, but not limited to, lawn and garden watering, car washing, and window washing, shall be limited as follows:  1)  Only users with even-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on even-numbered days and only users with odd numbered addresses may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days.  In the event no street address exists, only users living on the north and west side of a street may use water outdoors on even-numbered days, and only users on the and east side of a street may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days, and 2) Outdoor water use shall be prohibited between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., and between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight).

According to the plan I recieved, people with even numbered addresses can water Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday 10am-6pm and 10pm-6am. People with odd numbered addresses can water Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10am-6pm and 10pm-6am. If FBMUD#81 wants to limit everyone to only 2 days a week, they need to reword the plan to say “Users with even-numbered addresses can only water outdoors on Mondays and Thursdays and Users with odd numbered addresses can only water outdoors on Tuesdays and Fridays” instead of what is currently printed.
