City of Victoria terminates Stage I of Drought Contingency Plan

(VICTORIA, TEXAS) The City of Victoria is ending all drought contingency restrictions today. Water levels and flow rates on the Guadalupe River have been above normal for the last 14 days.

The City’s Drought Contingency Plan allows the City to terminate Stage I restrictions when the flow remains above normal for a period of 14 consecutive days. The “normal’ flow rate for each month of the year, which is based on historical flows, is provided in the City’s permit to divert surface water from the Guadalupe River that is issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Although the Stage I restrictions have been terminated, residents are encouraged to conserve water at all times including the use of water efficient shower heads, replacing old toilets and clothes washers with newer models, use the dishwater efficiently, fix any water leaks in your home, and water your yard only when it is needed.
