Stage1 Drought Rationing Ordered
Canyon Lake Water Service Company (CLWSC) on Tuesday announced Stage 1 rationing will begin Monday, Aug. 14 for all residential and commercial customers with the exception of those living in Rust Ranch and Whitmire Estates subdivisions.
Landscape watering (hose-end sprinkler and in-ground irrigation system) is limited to two days per week and according to the last digit of street address:
Even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) – Mondays and Thursdays
Odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) – Tuesdays and Fridays
If no street address is associated with the property, or there is more than one address, the irrigation days are Monday and Friday.
Drought stage implementation is determined by threshold levels of consumption or supply, the level of Canyon Lake, or any combination of these.
CLWSC service area surrounds Canyon Lake and includes approximately 250 square miles within Comal County and southern Blanco County. CLWSC infrastructure includes over 590 miles of pipes, three surface water treatment plants and over forty active wells located throughout the system. The company operates three wastewater treatment facilities and a fourth is under construction, all in Comal County.
