City of Bryan requests voluntary water conservation

Due to the ongoing drought, elevated temperatures, and excessive line breaks, the City of Bryan is asking its water customers to voluntarily limit their amount of water usage for outdoor watering.  To mitigate the load on the City of Bryan’s water system and ensure water is available for basic needs and fire protection, managing water use becomes increasingly important.

Effectively immediately, the City of Bryan is enacting Stage 1 of the City’s Drought Contingency Plan to raise public and customer awareness of water demand conditions.

“While the restrictions put in place at this stage are voluntary, if the community works together, implementing mandatory restrictions can be prevented,” said Public Works Director Jayson Barfknecht.

During this time, City of Bryan water customers are requested to voluntarily limit outdoor water use by participating in the following watering schedule for outdoor water use:

  • For addresses ending in 0, 1, 2 and Commercial Meters
    • Designated watering days are Thursday and Sunday
  • For addresses ending in 3,4,5 and Homeowners Associations
    • Designated watering days are Tuesday and Friday
  • For addresses ending in 6,7,8 and 9
    • Designated watering days are Wednesday and Saturday

Outdoor water use is discouraged between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., except with hand-held buckets or hand-held hoses equipped with a positive pistol grip nozzle or other device that automatically shuts off water flow when the hose is not being used. The time restrictions do not apply to the irrigation of commercial plant nurseries, irrigation using reclaimed water, new landscape installation during installation and the first 10 days, and the testing of new irrigation systems or existing irrigation systems being tested or under repair.
