NBU Moves to Stage 1 Drought Restrictions After ‘Noticeable Drop’ in Edwards Aquifer’s Water Level
A lack of rain in recent months has caused a noticeable drop in water level in the Edwards Aquifer, triggering Stage 1 Drought restrictions for New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) customers.
The restrictions take effect on Thursday.
Canyon Lake Water Service Service Company (CLWSC) customers remain under year-round water restrictions.
NBU’s drought restrictions are triggered by the 10-day water level of the Edwards Aquifer. Today, the J-17 well hit 666 feet.
“The New Braunfels Water Conservation and Drought Management Plan outlines that New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) put in place measures that are designed to help preserve this natural resource,” said NBU’s Chief Strategic Communications and Security Officer Melissa Krause.
“With spring gardening around the corner and Stage 1 in effect, this is a great opportunity to remind our customers that NBU offers a number of xeriscaping ideas and money-saving conservation rebates online at nbutexas.com, all designed to help NBU customers,” she said.
