Brazos River Authority enters drought watch for Lake Georgetown and Stillhouse Hollow Lake

Brazos River Authority enters drought watch for Lake Georgetown and Stillhouse Hollow Lake

On March 18, 2022, the Brazos River Authority (BRA) implemented Stage 1 – Drought Watch for Lake Georgetown and Stillhouse Hollow Lake, the City’s primary sources of water.  The warning is due to drier than normal conditions in the Brazos River basin and drought trigger levels set by the BRA’s Drought Contingency Plan.

City of Round Rock water customers are advised to use water wisely to help ensure adequate water supply during the hotter summer months. 

BRA’s Stage 1 – Drought Watch does not necessitate the City implementing mandatory water restrictions; however, it does require the City to take action to reduce water usage immediately. 

  • Do not water lawns or landscapes during the heat of the day, from noon to 7 p.m.
  • When watering is necessary, following the watering schedule 
  • Reduce irrigation system run times
  • Check for leaks in and around your home – Learn how

Nearly 75 percent of the City’s drinking water is used for irrigation during the summer. By using water wisely, you can help save water while maintaining a healthy lawn.

The City also has water conservation programs including free irrigation system evaluations, cash-back rebates on water-efficient clothes washers, toilets, and more to help you reduce water usage.

For more information about the City’s water supply, visit the City’s About Your Water page.
