League City removes water rationing, announces voluntary conservation
Residents in League City are no longer placed under stage three of the Drought Contingency Plan after a main water line was repaired, but are still asked to participate in stage one voluntary water conservation until further notice.
The city was placed under a stage three water restriction Thursday when city crews discovered a severe leak in a main water line near the intersection of Calder Drive and Link Road. The line carries 90 percent of the city’s surface water supply. Line repairs were completed by Friday at 8 p.m. and on Saturday the system was flushed and treated.
“Our residents have been extremely patient and cooperative during these repairs," City Manager Mike Loftin said in a press release. "We appreciate their efforts and ask that they continue to conserve under these new voluntary conditions. City staff has been working around the clock to make necessary repairs, keep our citizens informed and get full water service to our residents as quickly as possible; those efforts have not gone unnoticed.”
Stage one of the Drought Contingency Plan recommends that residential water customers irrigate landscaping on designated days depending on address during the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 10 p.m. until 4 p.m. The complete Drought Contingency Plan can be viewed online at leaguecity.com/dcp.
