Water consumption during late August to date has been greatly reduced thanks to the all-hands cooperation of our community and of course to the few days of rain that finally happened more recently. Due to this successful community-wide effort, the WCID 50 Board has waived the Stage 3 Drought contingency surcharge and will issue credits for any payments of these charges on a future bill as soon as processing allows. The District is also pleased to advise that there were no fine notices issued, only warnings.
Accordingly, as of September 20, 2023, WCID 50 is lowering its drought condition from Stage 3 to Stage 2. It is also likely that some stage of WCID 50’s Drought Contingency Plan will remain in effect as operations and usage warrant and/or until the Cities of Pasadena and Seabrook have eliminated any drought conditions they have set. Please continue to conserve water and thank you for the cooperation.
