Emergency watering restrictions in place for parts of Canyon Lake, Spring Branch, Bulverde, Blanco

Water consumption limited to indoor use only for areas under emergency water restrictions issued by Texas Water Compan

Excessive demand for water amid ongoing line repairs has prompted the Texas Water Company to issue emergency drought-stage watering conditions due to low water storage.

TWC officials said the low water storage could potentially impact the ability to provide safe, clean drinking water to its service area.

“The Texas Water Company continues to see high water usage and consumption demand due to excessive lawn watering and landscape irrigation,” officials said in a service alert issued Wednesday. “Watering grass and landscape irrigation has also occurred on non-water weeks and non-watering days (Wednesdays and Weekends).”

Water consumption will be limited to indoor use only for areas under emergency water restrictions.

The following service areas are moving to an Emergency Water Stage:

  • Belle Oaks
  • Bulverde
  • Cascada
  • City of Blanco
  • Comal Hills
  • Copper Canyon
  • Cross Canyon Ranch
  • Cypress Springs
  • Deer River
  • Edgebrook
  • Glenwood
  • Hidden Trails
  • Lake of the Hills
  • Lantana Ridge
  • Mystic Shores
  • Oakland Estates
  • River Crossing
  • Saddle Ridge
  • Singing Hills
  • Spring Branch
  • Springs of Rebecca Creek
  • Stallion Estates
  • Ventana

Residential, commercial, wholesale, and industrial customers should not engage in landscape irrigation until further notice, TWC officials said.

Bulk water haulers are prohibited from pulling water from hydrants until further notice.
