Harris County MUD 502 Water Conservation Update: Transition from Stage 2 to Voluntary Stage 1 Restrictions

Dear Customer:

Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 502 (MUD 502) has rescinded Stage 2 (mandatory) and re-initiated Stage 1 (voluntary) water conservation measures for potable (drinking) water.

Stage 1 (Voluntary) water use restrictions now in place:

  1. Water Customers are requested to limit all outdoor water usage, including, but not limited to, lawn and garden watering, car washing, and window washing to evennumbered days for Customers with even-numbered addresses and odd-numbered days for water Customers with -odd-numbered addresses, and only between the hours of 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and 12:00 midnight to 6:00 am. In the event no street address exists, Customers living on the north and west side of a street should use water outdoors only on even-numbered days and Customers living on the south and east side of a street should use water outdoors only on odd-numbered days.

Please check the settings on the controller for your irrigation system to make adjustments to the dates and times the system runs to implement these requested changes. Please note that the Towne Lake Community Association uses non-potable water from the lakes for irrigation of certain common areas throughout the Towne Lake community, which helps to reduce demand on the potable water system and preserve the availability of potable water for other uses.

MUD 502 will continue to monitor potable 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, wetter conditions, the Houston metropolitan area remains in drought conditions. As a result, the MUD 502 Board continues to strongly encourage all residents to carefully monitor their water usage and continue to voluntarily conserve potable water. The MUD 502 Board of Directors appreciates your cooperation and perseverance during this challenging time.
