After weeks of high temperatures reaching over 100 degrees and little to no rainfall, many cities in the Houston-Galveston area have implemented voluntary or mandatory water restrictions.
Fortunately, League City has NOT had to implement our Drought Contingency Plan which means there are currently NO watering restrictions in place.
While this could change at any time, League City is currently meeting supply demand, our delivery system is maintaining normal water pressure, and we are experiencing very few water line breaks. This is due to major improvements and upgrades that were made to the city’s water infrastructure after the 2011 drought. We are also experiencing a lower water demand when compared to previous years. We believe this is due to our water conservation education efforts and to our residents doing their part to conserve water.
To learn more, watch the interview below with Public Works Director Jody Hooks.
League City’s Public Works Department will continue to monitor water levels, usage, and pressure on a daily basis as the high temperature and lack of rain continues. Should the city need to activate voluntary or mandatory water restrictions, residents will be notified on the city’s website, social media channels, and via the City’s emergency notification system. To sign up for emergency notifications, go to www.leaguecity.com/alerts.
