Raise public awareness of potential drought problems. Achieve a 5% reduction in water use through voluntary water conservation by residents, businesses, and the Town.
Specific actions taken during any drought situation will be determined by the City Manager. The City Manager may also take other actions not listed, if deemed necessary. Following is a menu of possible actions:
- ALL WATER CUSTOMERS
- Encourage reduction in water use.
- Prohibit residential or commercial lawn watering and car washing between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
- CITY GOVERNMENT
- Initiate public education campaign teaching and encouraging reduced water use practices.
- Implement reduction in city use of landscape watering.
- Reduce city government use of water for street washing, vehicle washing, operation of ornamental fountains and all other nonessential use.
- Intensify normal leak detection and repair activities on water pipes and mains.
- City staff will begin review of the problems which initiated the Stage 1 actions.
- Notify major water users and work with them to achieve voluntary water use reduction.
The Town purchases 100% of its potable water from the City of Dallas. Addison has implemented its Drought Contingency Plan, and in doing so, is following the same emergency water management triggering criteria as the City of Dallas:
- Water supplies are low
- Water demand approaches system capacity
- Short-term deficiencies limit supply capability
- All initiated actions will remain in effect until the conditions which triggered Stage 1 have been alleviated.
