City of Sugar Land Needs Your Cooperation on Water Restrictions

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Southwest 0576394


Attention Sugar Land Residents:

Sugar Land is requesting voluntary water conservation from its residents to help reduce peak usage during the drought, to avoid mandatory water restrictions that surrounding counties are experiencing.

To reduce peak demand and total water consumption, Sugar Land residents are asked to water lawns according to a schedule. For even-numbered addresses on even-numbered days of the month, residents are asked to water from 8 p.m. to midnight. For odd-numbered addresses on odd-numbered days of the month, residents are asked to water from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The City is closely monitoring water consumption to determine if additional measures may be needed in the future, including implementation of the City's Drought Contingency Plan.

When you do water lawns, remember to pay attention to watering your foundations as well: Houston Water Your Foundation

Mike, water restrictions are never pleasant; especially in the middle of a hot summer.  So hard as a home owner who has worked hard on a prize-winning yard to watch it dry and scorch in the hot summer sun.  Hope Mother Nature brings you lots of rain soon.

Eileen my New York friends are bragging about the marvelous weather you are having up there. I think I know where I might be taking a vacation later this year.

Pam if it would help I will get a group together to do a rain dance as well.

Kathy the weather this year is crazy. Hope you get some relief in Florida soon too.

Vickie thanks for the well wishes. Hopefully things aren't as dry in Colorado.

Mike:

A difficult situation.  We have had water restrictions some years.  Not now, but our water company whats us to watch our water use.  We don't have restriction now.  Many Californians are beginning to give up their lawns in favor of native plants that are drought tolerant.  Extensive lawn are beautiful, but they don't belong in areas where water is a precious commodity.  Thanks for the information about conserving water.  Hope you get a good soaking soon, not too much, but enough.  Good luck to you Texan and Floridians too.
