City of Sugar Land approves revised drought plan
The city of Sugar Land has adopted a revised Drought Contingency Plan featuring new neighborhood irrigation zones.
According to the city, "As part of the new drought plan, neighborhoods in Sugar Land will be included in one of four irrigation zones. Each neighborhood zone will be assigned two watering days, either Wednesday and Sunday or Tuesday and Saturday. Commercial customers and roadways also have specific irrigation schedules limited to two days per week. Designated watering days will disperse irrigation use resulting in reduced daily water demands and stresses on the water system."
"Our revised plan considers both water availability and managing risk related to water shortages, mechanical failure and regulatory penalties," said Director of Utilities SuEllen Staggs in a press release. "It has only three stages, is much simpler to understand and will promptly decrease consumption in a water crisis."
The plan was adopted in October.
