San Antonio Water Restrictions Remain

By December 26, 2011

Despite the recent rains, San Antonio remains in Stage Two community water restrictions, according to the Edwards Aquifer Authority.  Because it's been one of the driest years in our state's history, authorities say they want to maintain the conservative watering habits to help the aquifer fully recover.

Water levels must stay above 650 feet for 30 days for the restrictions to be lifted.  Authorities say that's not expected to happen until at least early January.  When that happens, San Antonio residents would operate under Stage 1 restrictions. Under the current Stage 2 restrictions, sprinkler, soaker hose or irrigation system watering are allowed.  Watering must be done between 3 a.m to 8 a.m and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on your designated day.  That day is determined by the last number of your street address:

0 or 1 - Monday

2 or 3 - Tuesday

4 or 5 - Wednesday

6 or 7 - Thursday

8 or 9 - Friday
