Multiple cities around the Greater Houston area have placed water restrictions on residents and businesses as the drought conditions continue.

According to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the city of Pearland, the city of Katy, the city of La Porte, and the city of Seabrook are all under the notice.

In Fort Bend County, the city of Fulshear and Cinco MUD 1 and 14 are under the notice.

The City of Pearland has made the decision to enter stage 1 drought restrictions.

According to the city, key measurable conditions and their duration have prompted the decision, with Pearland Water continuing to monitor water usage across the city and the related impact on the city’s overall water system.

As part of the city of Pearland’s restrictions, residents were asked to voluntarily limit outdoor watering between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. They are also asked to reduce outdoor watering to twice per week, aligned with the resident’s trash days.
