Drought Contingency Plan

Eastland County Water Supply District has notified all water systems, which includes Staff WSC, that we need to dust off our Drought Contingency Plan. Due to fires, lack of rain, and extremely hot temperatures, this is quickly becoming a challenging year.  This area has not experienced a serious drought since 2011.  Lake levels are rapidly going down and daily monitoring is being done to determine if restrictions will need to be implemented. Customers will be made aware by our alert system should usage restrictions become necessary. Refer to our Drought Contingency Plan 2019 under "Forms and Reports" on our website for more details. In the meantime, avoid non-essential water usage such as washing vehicles, sidewalk, and filling pools.
