League City is rescinding Stage 3 of the City’s Drought Contingency Plan. Residential users west of Highway 3, who were under various water restrictions July 17-19, are now permitted to water their lawns, wash their vehicles, and use water to flush gutters, and wash down structures, sidewalks, and other surface areas.
The restrictions were a precautionary measure to complete the relocation of 39-inch water main tie-ins along I-45 which were necessary as part of TxDOT’s I-45 widening project. The tedious tie-in process, which was scheduled to last 72 hours, was completed earlier than anticipated and the City’s main water transmission line is currently providing water to the City at full capacity.
The City enacted Stage 3 of its Drought Contingency Plan to ensure regulatory compliant drinking water and fire protection during the relocation process. During the work, the City’s water system performed exceptionally well due to citizen compliance with water use restrictions and improved water system performance from the City’s on-going investment in utility infrastructure.
