New Braunfels Returns to Stage 1 Drought Restrictions
New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) entered Stage 1 Drought Restrictions today after the Edwards Aquifer J-17 well hit 659.8 feet.
New Braunfels Water Conservation and Drought Management Plan allows NBU to enact water-conservation measures when aquifer readings meet specific trigger points.
“Customers can visit nbutexas.com to keep up with water stage and to access a variety of tools to help manage their utility bills,” said Melissa Krause, NBU’s chief communications and strategy officer.
This is the second time this year NBU has returned to Stage 1 restrictions.
Canyon Lake Water Service Company (CLWSC)/SJWTX customers remain under a year-round current drought stage.
Landscape watering using in-ground or above-ground sprinkler systems is limited to two days per week from 7 to 10 a.m. or 7 to 10 p.m. depending on the last digit of a street address.
