The Brazos River Authority directed local communities to implement water conservation measures on Thursday.
According to III Corps and Fort Hood, due to the low levels at Belton Lake, the Brazos River Authority is implementing stage one of its water shortage contingency plan.
The contingency plan is required for soldiers, civilians and contractors who work or reside on Fort Hood:
· No watering of all types of landscaping between the hours of 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily. No water runoff allowed from areas being watered.
· All personnel will minimize the use of water for irrigation of landscaping and vehicle washing and will not waste potable water.
· No use of potable water to wash driveways, sidewalks or buildings for general cleaning.
· Report all water leaks to the Directorate of Public Works at (254) 287-2113.
The goal of the contingency plan is to reduce daily water usage by at least five percent. Stage one will remain in effect until the order is rescinded.
