BRA goes to Stage 2 drought conservation
April 01, 2014
The Brazos River Authority (BRA) is recommending water conservation efforts for the Possum Kingdom-Granbury-Whitney reservoir subsystem.
With the ongoing drought thoughout Texas, the BRA has issued a Stage 2 drought warning declaration for the subsystem of reservoirs on the main stem of the Brazos River. Stage 2 drought warning is intended to help preserve and extend water supplies during drought conditions and includes strategies for temporary supply and demand management. At the drought warning stage, the BRA requests that customers employ their own drought contingency plans by implementing a 10 percent reduction in water use that would have occurred under normal conditions.
A copy of BRA's dought contingency plan can be found at www.brazos.org/DroughtContingency.asp or by contacting the BRA at 254-761-3100. For information on water conservation go to www.brazos.org/conservation.asp.
We currently are at stage 1 drought advisory. More information about our plan can be found in Conservation Tips under the News & Notices Tab.
