Kyle Calls Off Water Restrictions

The city of Kyle is lifting its water restrictions.

In a letter sent out today, the city says recent rains have "sufficiently recharged" supplies "to allow for the removal of water restrictions beginning immediately. However, even with the removal of mandatory twice a week watering and other restrictions, City officials continue to ask residents to do their part to conserve water." Tips include checking your home and property for leaky pipes and not using a lawn irrigation system that is damaged or is spraying water onto a road or parking lot.

Kyle gets some water from surface sources, but also from the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District and the Edwards Aquifer Authority. The former pulled out of drought status, with the advent of recent rains; parts of the latter are still under Stage II restrictions.
