Fort Bend MUD 151 Rescinds Stage 1 Drought Contingency

Oct 23, 2023See All Posts

Firethorne residents,

After careful consideration and a thorough evaluation of current water resources and weather conditions, Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 151 has officially rescinded the Stage 1 Drought Contingency.

This decision comes as a result of recent improvements in water availability and consistent rainfall, which have significantly alleviated concerns over water supply.

What Does Rescinding Stage 1 Drought Contingency Mean?

Rescinding the Stage 1 Drought Contingency means that certain water use restrictions and limitations that were previously in place are now lifted. Residents are no longer required to adhere to specific conservation measures that were implemented during the drought period.

While the Stage 1 Drought Contingency has been rescinded, we urge residents to continue using water responsibly. Water conservation is an essential practice that helps ensure the sustainability of our water resources in the long term. By being mindful of our water usage, we can collectively contribute to a more environmentally conscious community.

Continued Water Conservation Efforts:

  1. Fix Leaks Promptly: Report and repair any leaks in your home promptly.
  2. Install Water-Saving Devices: Consider installing low-flow fixtures and appliances to reduce water consumption.
  3. Be Mindful of Outdoor Water Use: Avoid unnecessary water wastage when irrigating lawns and gardens.
  4. Educate and Encourage Others: Spread awareness about the importance of water conservation within your community.

We would like to express our gratitude to all residents for their cooperation and commitment to water conservation during the period of drought contingency. Your efforts have made a significant impact.
