Dear Member,

                As the summer heat continues and rain has been scarce, Lake Palo Pinto Area Water Supply Corporation will be implementing STAGE 1 Drought Restrictions effective July 15, 2022.  The complete Drought Contingency Plan can be found on our website www.lakepalopintoareawsc.com

Stage I Response -- Mild Water Shortage Conditions

  1. Target:  Maintain total water use by system users to less than 150,000 gallons per day.
  2. Best Management Practices for Supply Management:  LPPAWSC will reduce or discontinue flushing of water mains and will promote the use of alternative water sources.
  3. Water Use Restrictions for Reducing Demand:  Water customers are requested to voluntarily limit the irrigation of landscaped areas to Sundays and Thursdays for customers with account numbers ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8), and Saturdays and Wednesdays for customers with account numbers ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9), and to irrigate landscapes only between the hours of midnight and 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to midnight on designated watering days.
  4. All operations of LPPAWSC shall adhere to water use restrictions prescribed for Stage II of the Plan.
  5. Water customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.

These restrictions will be in effect until further notice.  Please join our alert system on our website to receive notifications sooner.  Thank you for helping to conserve water!
