SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — New Braunfels Utilities announced yesterday that city residents can return to non-drought watering rules after two months of restrictions.
The watering rules were put into place on September 2 after the Edwards Aquifer dropped below the required volume to avoid further watering restrictions.
The non-drought watering rules mean NBU customers are allowed to water with a sprinkler or irrigation system two days per week before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. based on the last digit of the customer’s address.
Monday and Thursday: Addresses ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8.
Tuesday and Friday: Addresses ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.
Watering is now allowed on weekends unless a customer has been granted a water variance request.
“As we enter Non-Drought status, NBU encourages customers to continue to practice water conservation and observe watering guidelines. Conservation can help to manage water bills. New Braunfels Utilities offers a variety of resources to help customers implement water-saving measures at nbutexas.com/conservation,” said Chief Communications and Strategy Officer Melissa Krause.
