Request for Voluntary Water Reduction
Recently, the Brazos River Authority (BRA) announced that a Stage 1 drought watch has been implemented for Lake Somerville. Due to the drier-than-normal conditions in the lower Brazos River Basin, Stage 1 has been activated which entails a voluntary 5%-reduction of the water use that would have occurred in the absence of any drought contingency measures.
To meet the voluntary reduction requested by BRA, the City of Brenham is asking water customers to voluntarily reduce water consumption as much as possible. Donald Reese, Assistant City Manager/Public Services-Utilities said, "We want to do our part in this, as a community and within our homes, to decrease water usage to support this effort."
