STAGE 1 – MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTIONS

The Fern Bluff Municipal Utility has enacted Stage 1- Mandatory Water Restrictions effective October 14, 2013. The district, as a wholesale customer of the City of Round Rock, has adopted and follows the city’s conservation/drought plan.
The Brazos River Authority (BRA) issued a Stage 2 Drought Warning Declaration for Lake Georgetown on October 4, 2013. The BRA has notified each of its Lake Georgetown customers that its Stage 2 declaration is required, despite recent rains and cooling temperatures, in order to make the water supply from the reservoir last longer in the continuing drought conditions.
