Victoria is Now in Stage 3 Water Restrictions
Victoria water woes are only getting worse. Tuesday night, council members voted unanimously to move the city into Stage 3 of its drought contingency plan. The change could mean more homes and even businesses will be forced to turn off the tap.
When you’re watering your front yard or filling in your golf score card, things might seem a little dry. On Tuesday city leaders gave the green light to push Victoria into Stage 3 of the drought contingency plan, because of low levels in the Guadalupe. Under Stage 3 people can only water their lawns on certain days, restaurants can only serve customers water if requested and golf courses watering hours are cut.
Robby Burdge with Colony Club Golf course said the restrictions could be costly and more time consuming to accommodate. City officials stated, the restrictions will go into effect September 1st unless the water levels of the Guadalupe rise.
