The Upper Trinity Regional Water District region has been under Stage 1 Water Restrictions since last spring. This limits outdoor irrigation to two days per week, between 6 PM and 10 AM only. The system had been keeping pace, but today usage has increased to extremely high levels. All residents are urged to REDUCE OUTDOOR WATER USAGE to avoid a water emergency. If no significant reduction occurs, UTRWD may be forced to enact Stage 2 Water Restrictions. Please do you part.
