Lost Creek Water Conservation plan has changed effective April 15, 2012
Lost Creek MUD has changed its Water Conservation Plan that will go into effect April 15, 2012. Everyone should know that we are experiencing an extended drought which may soon become the worst drought of record here in Central Texas. We cannot stress enough that the drought is historic in proportion and no one can predict its long-term outcome. Although we have received some rainfall recently, the reservoirs remain at a low level.
The changes are intended to further prepare us for additional water restrictions looming for all Central Texas residents. The primary changes in the plan amends the watering schedules and triggers. These changes are needed in order to:
• Address the extended drought.
• Align our Conservation Plan with others in the area.
• Prepare for a possible 20% mandatory water use reduction for all users of LCRA water supplies, including Lost Creek. LCRA will enact this restriction if water storage reaches 600,000 acre feet of water or less.
The full plan can be seen by clicking on the PDF below or you can view a red lined version of the plan by clicking on the 'Conservation' box at the top of this page. We are currently at Stage 2 alowing once a week watering only! The watering schedule follows:
Single family residents may only water outdoors once a week.
i. Odd addresses: Saturday ii. Even addresses: Sunday
Businesses and multifamily units may only water outdoors once a week.
i. Odd addresses: Tuesday ii. Even addresses: Friday

We thank you for your patience and assistance in addressing this extended drought by complying with the watering schedule effective April 15.
Sincerely Lost Creek MUD
