KATY, Texas – Katy is asking its residents to conserve water.
In multiple Facebook posts, the city said it needs help as “drought conditions are getting to a critical stage with not getting any substantial rainfall since the end of May.”
Katy initially posted about dire water issues on July 11 and then on Thursday.
“We are needing HOAs, commercial businesses, and residents to please reduce irrigating, as water reports are showing that the majority usage of water is from irrigation,” A post on Wednesday reads. “The city is asking for everyone to participate in conserving water, it will take everyone to make a difference!”
Katy City Council will hold a special meeting on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. to discuss, among other things “(West Harris County Regional Water Authority) to provide surface water” and “ordinance amending drought contingency plan.”[ad_2]
