The drought is setting in once again. On May 3rd, the The Hays Trinity Groundwater Conservation District (HTGCD) updated the district’s drought status from ‘Alarm’ to ‘Critical’. The change, effective June 1, won’t directly effect on our neighborhood but it is a good indication that the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) is will also increase their drought declaration in the next 30-60 days, forcing Dripping Springs Water Supply Corporation (WSC) to further restrict water usage.
WSC has currently implemented Stage 2 watering restrictions which limit automatic irrigation systems to 2 days per week. If WSC is required to implement Stage 3 watering restrictions, automatic watering will be limited to 1 day per week. All Hidden Springs Ranch residents are encouraged to review their watering schedules and to comply with WSC restrictions.
