12/10/2020 - Stage 1 Voluntary Water Conservation



Stage 1 Voluntary Water Conservation Currently in Effect

Brushy Creek MUD Residents encouraged to reduce water usage

Due to the lack of rain replenishing our water sources, Stage 1 Voluntary Water Conservation is now in effect for Brushy Creek MUD. 

Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District has developed a 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 enforces BRA’s conservation plan. 

The Brazos River Authority has implemented Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency Plan in order to achieve a voluntary five percent (5%) reduction in water use. Stage 1 is triggered when there is a six (6) month period of sustained pumping through the Williamson County Regional Raw Water Line to Lake Georgetown, where the District receives its surface water supply. The Brazos River Authority has requested that Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District implement actions consistent with Stage 1 of the Brazos River Authority’s Drought Contingency Plan to achieve the water use reduction goal.

Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District has implemented Stage 1 Voluntary Water Conservation of their Drought Contingency Plan and it is currently in effect for Brushy Creek MUD, Brushy Bend, and the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park. Customers are encouraged to reduce water usage whenever possible.  The District’s website is filled with water conservation information.
