Dear Customer,

Travis County MUD No.10 has moved to Stage III – Severe Drought of its Drought Contingency Plan (DCP)

The Central Texas area is experiencing a severe drought, and combined with extreme high temperatures, it continues to cause Texas lake levels to decline, including Lake Travis. The District purchases raw water from LCRA via a contract and draws water out of Lake Travis to treat and produce potable drinking water for its residents. Such purchases are subject to LCRA’s Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) as well as the DCP of Travis County MUD No.10. Click here to view the District’s DCP.

The combined storage for Lake Travis and Lake Buchanan has fallen below 900,000 acre-feet and the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) has instructed customers to implement this next stage to help reduce water consumption.

What does this mean to you?

  • Yard irrigation is only allowed once per week.
  • The monthly household water allowance has been decreased as shown below in the chart. If usage exceeds the allowance, rates for the excess water usage will be multiplied by 200% of normal rates for residential use and 400% of normal rates for all common areas.

Please make sure your irrigation system controllers are properly programmed to the authorized day for watering. Ensure your irrigation systems are working properly and repair any broken sprinkler heads or lines quickly.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the District’s office at 512.402.1990.
