Buda green lights changes to water conservation rules

  Buda city leaders June 18 gave the green light to changes within its water conservation ordinance.

Those changes, approved by a 7-0 vote, will go into effect immediately.

Blake Neffendorf, Buda Water Resources coordinator, said in a statement the city made changes to Stage 2 restrictions after a review of water production data in 2018 showed no major difference in water consumption between Stage 1 and Stage 2.

Under new Stage 2 rules, the timeframe to irrigate lawns has been condensed to help reduce water consumption, Neffendorf said.

Meanwhile, changes made to Stage 3 and Stage 4 restrictions keep the odd/even numbered watering schedule consistent across all restriction stages.

There were no changes to the year-round water use allowance and restrictions, or the Stage 1 drought restrictions.
