Drought Level 1 water restrictions took effect today, per City Council action last week.

Christian Delbert

What this means is that outside watering is limited to once every seven days at no more than 1 inch during that span.

Outside watering is prohibited from noon to 6 p.m. Runoff of more than 150 feet down any street, gutter, alley or ditch is also prohibited (as it always is, regardless of which level of the drought contingency plan San Angelo is in).

Watering violations can be reported at cosatx.us/water, calling 325-277-8906 or emailing james.flores@cosatx.us.

We are nearing 24 months of available water supply and the approach of what is forecast to be a hot, dry summer with an El Nino weather pattern. Do your part to conserve
our most precious resource, WATER!
