UPDATED March 2015: Water Restriction Information from the City of Rockport, Texas

(Updated March, 2015)

Water Restrictions are in ForceThe City of Rockport is currently in Stage 2 of mandatory water conservation. Combined water levels for Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon are nearing the levels that will move us to Stage 3.

Wednesday – Odd numbered residences
Thursday – Multifamily and commercial

Property owners using water wells, wastewater treatment plant effluent, or gray water for irrigation are exempt from the restrictions; however, the ordinance does require those users to post a sign stating the water used for irrigation is from a private well, wastewater treatment plant effluent, gray water or source other than the city's water supply. It is a separate violation to display a sign which falsely claims the water used to be from another source.

Stage 2, which is part of the City’s Drought Contingency and Emergency Water Plan, limits watering to once a week between the hours of 6 pm and 10 am. Anyone utilizing city water and not following the mandatory guidelines for water restrictions will be issued a citation.

The watering schedule for Stage 2 is:

Tuesday – Even numbered residences
The City implemented Stage 2 in response to the combined lake storage levels of Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon dropping to 40 percent of capacity.
Rockport buys treated water from the San Patricio Municipal Water District (SPMWD) which, in turn, buys raw water from the City of Corpus Christi. SPMWD and the City of Corpus Christi implemented similar restrictions. The City’s contract with SPMWD requires the City to follow SPMWD’s plan.
The City of Rockport will continue to monitor lake levels and adjust the plan’s stage level as needed. For additional information on the plan, click on the link below.
