Water Conservation & Restrictions

Update to Drought Contingency and Emergency Water Management Plan

The District recently revised its Drought Contingency Plan. The main change involved removing voluntary restrictions that were formerly associated with Stage 1 restrictions. Stage 1 restrictions are now MANDATORY for all District residents.

Complete Updated Drought Contingency Plan  

Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District has revised its state-approved Drought Contingency Plan to reduce the risk to its water sources (Lake Georgetown and Lake Stillhouse) falling to critically low levels during a severe drought. Since the District receives water that is under the jurisdiction of the Brazos River Authority (BRA), it also follows BRA’s drought plan. 

The Brazos River Authority has requested that Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District implement actions to reduce water usage according to the guidelines of the authority's Drought Contingency Plan to achieve the water use reduction goal. 

At all times when the District’s Drought and Emergency Water Management Stages are not in effect, users are requested to voluntarily limit the use of water for non-essential purposes and to practice water conservation, including by limiting landscape irrigation use to not more than twice per week in accordance with the following voluntary watering schedule: 

Property Address Recommended Watering Days 
 Odd-Numbered Addresses Tuesday and/or Saturday 
 Even-Numbered Addresses Wednesday and/or Sunday 

 In the event no address number exists for the outdoor water use location, Users are requested to voluntarily restrict water use to the same days as even-numbered addresses.

Customers are required to reduce water usage according to the guidelines of the drought plan. The District’s website is filled with water conservation information.

Water Conservation

The District diverts raw water from Lake Georgetown pursuant to a water supply agreement with the Brazos River Authority (BRA). The District will comply with and implement any applicable drought contingency requirements set forth in the water supply contract with BRA, or that may be implemented pursuant to BRA’s Drought Contingency Plan. District residents are encouraged to limit their use of water for non-essential purposes and to practice water conservation. Brazos River Drought Information
