City moves to Stage 5 rationing

August 3, 2011 by Randy Keck

From the City of Willow Park
The City of Willow Park has issued a stage 5 water restriction due to the extreme drought conditions we are experiencing. These conditions continue to lower the aquifer levels and are contributing to the loss of our reserves. Stage 5 restrictions are as follows: outside watering is prohibited at all times. Customers in violation will be issued a citation of up to $500 dollars. Stage 5 restrictions are effective immediately and will resume until our reserves have recovered. Thank you for your efforts to conserve water.

Water restrictions under way in local cities

July 15, 2011 by Randy Keck

One of the hottest, driest summers in history is beginning to take its toll on local water supplies.

All local communities have enacted some form of water restrictions. The latest to join is the City of Aledo, which enacted Stage I of its Drought Contingency Plan effective Friday, July 15.

Willow Park is under Stage IV of its Water Conservation Plan.

Hudson Oaks has been under Stage II of its plan.

Deer Creek is under Stage III.

Hudson Oaks Assistant City Administrator Patrick Lawler pointed out that the area’s rainfall is the lowest in 116 years.

“It’s going to be a true test of the capacity of these systems,” Lawler said. “I would encourage people to please try to conserve water.”
