Hidden Springs Faces Continued Watering Restrictions

Just a friendly reminder to all of our neighbors that Dripping Springs is still under Stage 2 watering restrictions. Despite recent rains, and a creek that is actually flowing for a change, Dripping Springs and the surrounding area is still way behind on rainfall. As a result, the Dripping Springs Water Supply Corp is keeping all residential and commercial customers on a once-per-week watering schedule (see below).

Watering and car-washing days are as follows:
Residential - Odd number addresses: Wednesdays
Residential - Even number addresses: Thursdays
Commercial and HOA property: Tuesdays

Watering hours are between midnight and 10:00AM and between 7:00PM and midnight.
Questions about watering restrictions can be forwarded to the Dripping Springs Water Supply Corp at 512.858-7897.
