The 10-day average for the Edwards Aquifer at Alamo Heights’s monitoring well has dropped to 659.9, requiring Stage 1 water restrictions effective Friday, July 14.
Today, per City ordinance, Public Works Director Patrick Sullivan in consultation with City Manager Mark Browne declared Stage 1 water restriction regulations are in effect.
Stage 1 of the city’s drought plan is triggered when the 10-day average of the Edwards Aquifer at the J-17 monitoring well drops to below 660 feet. As per the City’s Groundwater use reduction program ordinance, the drought stages can be considered to ended after the level of Index Well J-17 remains above its trigger level for the stage in effect for a ten-day rolling average.
Under Stage 1, Watering (using automatic or manual irrigation systems) is permitted only once a week before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. The last number of your address determines what day you are able to water. You may use drip irrigation, soaker hose or hand-held hose during any day at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at (210) 882-1518.
