Georgetown City Council approves two-day watering schedule, new drought plan:
City Council approved the first reading of amendments to two ordinances related to water conservation at its meeting Tuesday.
The changes update the City’s water use requirements ordinance to make the current two-day watering schedule for irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers the permanent watering schedule.
The new, permanent two-day watering schedule for irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers is based on the last digit of customers’ street address.
Address ends in:
May water these days:
1, 5, 9 Tue. and/or Fri.
2, 4, 6, 8 Wed. and/or Sat.
0, 3, 7 Thu. and/or Sun.
The two-day schedule spreads watering over six days each week in order to balance demand on the water system. Irrigation is not permitted on Mondays. Monday is reserved as a recovery and maintenance day for the system.
Watering with an irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler should not be done between the hours of noon to 7 p.m. each day. Watering with hose-end sprinklers must comply with the new schedule. Use of a hand-held hose or bucket can be any day and at any time. Other outdoor water uses such as vehicle washing or filling a swimming pool can be done any day at any time.
Violations of the irrigation schedule may result in fines.
Drought Contingency Plan:
A second ordinance change updated the city’s Drought Contingency Plan to reflect new triggers for additional watering restrictions based on drought conditions. Upon approval of the second reading, the plan calls for mandatory one-day per week watering schedule for all customers when certain triggers are met. Those triggers are tied to the City’s water treatment capacity, the volume of Lake Georgetown and Lake Stillhouse Hollow, and a variety of other factors. Council will hear the second reading at its April 23 meeting.
The City is offering three new rebates for customers to improve the efficiency of their irrigation systems. Customers can receive $150 in rebates for each of the following programs: changing their irrigation system from a spray system to a drip system, converting spray nozzles to multi-stream nozzles, or installing a wi-fi enabled “smart” controller to help irrigation systems run more efficiently.

A reminder to all customers: #NoWateringMonday. Monday is a recovery day for the water treatment, storage, and distribution system.

Our beautiful neighborhood is experiencing an ongoing problem of reckless driving. This is no small matter as there have been some near misses of cars vs. cars and cars vs. pedestrians. Please slow down! In the spirit of neighborliness and safety, watch for other drivers and pedestrians. Pay careful attention as you leave your driveways.
Speed limits are posted on the community streets as either 25 mph or 30 mph. Our own residents have been observed going in excess of 50 mph on Oak Branch Drive and exceeding limits on the side streets as well. These offenders are not contractors or visitors.
The consequences of an accident are, at best, costly and time consuming for repairs; at worst, a life could be lost. Slow down and drive like you live here
Lost & Found:
Advise neighbors about lost and found pets and personal belongings through the site's Lost and Found section.
Please do not Feed the Deer:
While feeding deer may enhance wildlife viewing, decades of research has clearly shown that supplemental feeding leads to increased disease risk, long-term habitat destruction, increased vehicle collisions, habituation to humans and alteration of other deer behavioral patterns and, ultimately, the demise of the value of deer and deer-related recreation. With CWD approaching our borders, the increased potential for disease transmission and outbreak is perhaps our greatest and most immediate concern, but habitat degradation, resulting in loss of wildlife diversity and abundance, and the introduction and invasion of exotic plants are consequences of feed that have been documented throughout North America and are a concern.
