Drought Contingency Plan Stage 1 – Voluntary Water-Use Restrictions

Due to prolonged drought conditions and North Fort Bend Water Authority’s initiation of Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan (“DCP”), Fort Bend MUD 118 (the “District”) has instituted Stage 1 water conservation measures of its DCP. Effective immediately, the following voluntary water-use restrictions are in place:

  1. All outdoor water usage will be limited to
    1. even-numbered [calendar] days for customers with even-numbered addresses
    2. odd-numbered [calendar] days for water customers with odd-numbered addresses
    3. Outdoor water use is prohibited between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight) [on the designated days of outdoor water use]
  1. Water customers are asked to voluntarily reduce water use by
    1. checking your toilets, showerheads, and faucets for leaks
    2. checking under sinks for wet spots, leaking supply lines, fittings, or valves
    3. checking your irrigation system for leaks, repairing as needed
    4. sweep driveways, sidewalks, and patios instead of hosing them off

The Board of Directors of Fort Bend MUD 118 appreciates your cooperation to help conserve one of our community’s most important resources. Please stay alert to District communication as drought conditions improve or worsen.
