City lifts mandatory water conservation measures

VICTORIA, Texas- The City of Victoria announced Wednesday that the community is no longer required to limit their water but still encouraged to practice voluntary water conservation measures. The City terminated all restrictions under the drought contingency plan.

The City explained that the drought contingency plan is a series of water conservation measures that the City is authorized to take during periods of decreased water availability. You can view the plan here.

The City had been in Stage II of the plan since November 2020, when the Guadalupe River flow dropped below the Stage II triggering threshold as defined by the City code. The City is now lifting Stage II and Stage One restrictions because the river flow has risen above its normal level for 14 consecutive days.

The community can conserve water by using efficient showerheads, replacing old toilets and washing machines with new models, using dishwashers efficiently, repairing leaks, and not overwatering yards.
