The West Harris County Regional Water Authority (the “Authority”) withdrew implementation of Stage 2 of its Drought Contingency Plan and reinitiated implementation of Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan.
Under Stage 1, the Authority continues to request all water users to voluntarily reduce their water usage. The Authority will continue to monitor water use and will provide another notice if the drought stage changes or if Stage 1 drought conditions have been lifted. Please keep in mind that, despite the recent cooler and wetter conditions, drought conditions remain in the Houston region.
NHCRWA implements Stage 2 of the Drought Contingency Plan
The City of Houston (COH), the primary source of water for the North Harris County Regional Water Authority (Authority), has entered stage two of their Drought Contingency Plan, effective on August 27, 2023. The COH’s drought response calls for mandatory water conservations efforts to reduce water use, that will reduce the daily volume of water delivered. The Houston Public Works Release can be found under https://cityofhouston.news/stagetwodrought/ .
As required by the Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan, the Authority must enter Stage 2 of our Drought Contingency Plan, when the COH enters into Stage 2 water shortage of their Drought Contingency Plan. The Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan requires that any customer receiving water from the Authority or well owner whose well is included under the Authority’s Harris-Galveston Subsidence District aggregate water well permit:
- Repair detectible water leaks within 72 hours of discovery;
- Utilize water conservation measures such as displacement bags, low-flow shower heads and leak detection tablets. Additional water conservation tips can be found at www.irrygator.com;
- Limit outdoor irrigation to the hours 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. of the following day on no more than two (2) days per week, in conformity with the following schedule (no watering on Mondays):
- Sundays and Thursdays for single-family residential customers with even-numbered street addresses
- Saturdays and Wednesdays for single-family residential customers with odd-numbered street addresses; and
- Tuesdays and Fridays for all other customers
Compliance with the above requirements is mandatory.

MUD 163’s water supplier, WHCRWA, as well as the City of Houston, have entered Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plans. As a result, MUD 163 is entering into Stage 1 of our Drought Contingency Plan. In Stage 1 we request that our Users voluntarily reduce water usage to achieve a 20% reduction in daily water demand utilizing the following steps:
- Check for and repair all leaks, dripping faucets and running toilets.
- Check for and correct excessive irrigation or uncorrected leaks that result in water leaving the User’s property by drainage onto adjacent properties or public or private roadways or streets or gutters.
- All outdoor water use shall be prohibited between the hours of 4a.m. and 8a.m., and between the hours of 8p.m. and 12a.m. (midnight) limited to the following schedule:
- District residents and other users of water within the District with even-numbered street addresses may use water outdoors on even-numbered days.
- District residents and other users of water within the District with odd-numbered street addresses may use water outdoors on odd-numbered days.
- In the event no address exists, users may use water on even-numbered days.
- Check schedules on automatic irrigation controllers, consider using the “cycle and soak” method. This method breaks up watering time into smaller cycles, allowing the water to soak into the soil. To use this method, divide the current watering time for each irrigation zone in half, then select two start times that are 2 hours apart.
Ex. If you currently water for 10 minutes at 4am. Consider Watering 5 minutes at 2a.m. and 5 minutes at 4a.m.
Some residents will experience a water outage on 5/26/22 due to the replacement of a water interconnect meter. The outage will begin at 9:00 am for a duration of approximately 8 hours. Please contact Inframark customer service for any questions or concerns.
