City Decreases River Water Consumption

in an Effort to Conserve Water

May, 2014.   In an effort to conserve water, the City of Kerrville is now reducing the amount of water pumped from the Guadalupe River by one million gallons.  Eighty percent (80%) of Kerrville’s drinking water comes from the Guadalupe River but in times like these, it is also important to keep the river flowing to assure a healthy river system.  The spring rains did not recharge the Edwards Plateau Aquifer which feeds the springs that sustain the Guadalupe River flow.  As a result, the Guadalupe River Basin has not received much relief from the ongoing drought.  The river is now flowing at a rate of 9 cubic feet per second (CFS).  Normal flow rate for this time of year is approximately 140 CFS.

With the Guadalupe River flow getting so low, the City is reducing river water pumping by approximately 30%.  Last month we used an average of 3.6 million gallons per day of water from the river.  We are reducing this to approximately 2.6 million gallons per day to allow other uses of this water in the river such as recreation, irrigation and aquatic life.

 The City will utilize other sources of water including well water, ASR water (surface water stored underground), and lake water to make up the difference.  Without significant rain in the next 30 days, further limiting of pumping from the river is anticipated.  At this point, this reduction will not affect the current water conservation stage.  The City of Kerrville is currently in Stage 1 of the Water Conservation Measures.  The watering schedule for Stage 1 allows for landscape and lawn watering with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. midnight on Tuesday and Saturday for street addresses whose last digit ends in an odd number, and on Wednesday and Sunday for street addresses whose last digit ends in an even number.

Landscape watering with a hand-held hose is allowed every day, anytime.  The City of Kerrville Water Management Plan can be found on the City of Kerrville website at www.kerrvilletx.gov.
