Watering restrictions change April 1

Post Date:03/29/2019

Outside watering will be allowed twice every seven days beginning Monday, April 1, in keeping with the City’s drought contingency ordinance.

San Angelo is under standard conservation, which limits watering to twice every seven days from April 1 through Oct. 31, but prohibits watering from noon to 6 p.m. By ordinance, watering restrictions tighten to once every seven days from Nov. 1 through March 31. Watering is limited to no more than 1 inch per week.

It is always a violation to allow water to run more than 150 feet down any street, gutter, alley or ditch.

Watering violations can be reported to the Code Compliance division at cosatx.us/water, emailing rudy.ibarra@cosatx.us, or by calling 325-657-4409.

San Angelo has approximately 68 months of available water supply. That figure includes water from the Hickory Aquifer and assumes a worst-case scenario with no runoff into the city’s surface water supplies during that span.

San Angelo relies upon O.H. Ivie and Twin Buttes reservoirs, and Lake Nasworthy as its primary water sources. As of March 29, Ivie was 55 percent full, Twin Buttes was at 66 percent of its capacity and Nasworthy at 89 percent. O.C. Fisher Reservoir was at 14 percent.

San Angelo has received 1.26 inches of rainfall to date this year. Normally, San Angelo averages 3.64 inches through March 29. Last year, the city had received 2.57 inches by that date.
