Water Shortage Stage Triggers

Year-Round Water Conservation

Customers are encouraged to adopt year-round water conservation practices, regardless of the season or water supply conditions. Guidelines for year-round water conservation as provided in Section X, “Water Shortage Response”  remain in effect until the City Manager declares a water shortage. Year-round water conservation automatically resumes upon termination of all water shortage stages. Peak season for water use in Temple is the period from June 1st to September 30th, and special attention to water conservation in this period is critical to protecting valuable drinking water resources.
