The Drought and Emergency Response Plan
The purpose of this section of the Water Management Plan is to conserve the available water supply and protect public health, welfare, and safety in times of drought and emergencies. This plan, which focuses on reservoir capacity and water supply issues, was developed in consultation with the North Texas Municipal Water District. The following restrictions limit water use based on water supply capacity. View More
