LLANO, Texas (KXAN) - The City of Llano has ordered stage two water restrictions to be implemented immediately due to low flows on the Llano River and forecasted hot and dry conditions.
Property owners can only water twice per week according to the published schedule, and are not allowed to water during the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Odd-numbered addresses may water Wednesday and Saturday, even numbered addresses may water Thursday and Sunday and commercial or multifamily properties may water Tuesday and Friday.
Additional restrictions prohibit the use of water for fountains, wash down of sidewalks and washing of vehicles except on designated watering days. Violation of the water use restrictions may result in a fine according to the city's drought ordinance.
The city is also asking residents to use water wisely by keeping irrigation water off sidewalks and out of gutters. "If water is going into the street, it's not helping your lawn," said City Manager Finley DeGraffenried.
