Due to current drought conditions, Lakeway MUD moved to Stage 3 restrictions starting Sept. 1. These water restrictions affect irrigation schedules pertaining to outdoor use of an in-ground/automatic irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler.
Customers are asked to do their part. “We seem to be stuck in a persistent La Niña weather pattern. It’s a primary contributor to these exceptionally dry conditions. Forecasters predict it could be over by the end of this year, but the Highland Lakes, which serve as the primary source of water for the surrounding communities, will continue to be depleted without a significant amount of rain, said Earl Foster, General Manager, Lakeway Municipal Utility District (LMUD) “We’re asking our customers to cut back on their irrigation habits because regionally, research shows that on average, households spend 60 percent of their annual residential water consumption on outdoor use. Using water wisely really should be an ongoing effort.”
Watering by hand, power washing, car washing, etc. are allowed any day at any time.
Irrigation Hours: Midnight to 10 a.m. & 7 p.m. to Midnight
NO WATERING 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
