The lack of meaningful rainfall, continued hot, dry conditions and overall growth and development are leading to higher than normal water use among Upper Trinity’s Customers. Upper Trinity has determined that water demand is approaching a level that could cause a reduced delivery capacity for all or parts of its transmission system. Therefore, Upper Trinity is initiating Stage 1 – Water Watch of its Drought Contingency Plan.
Under Stage 1, outdoor watering is limited to a maximum of two times per week and prohibited between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All wholesale customers, primarily in Denton County, have been requested to implement these and other water-saving measures. Residents should check their city’s or utility’s website or social media for specific requirements regarding outdoor watering.
