NTMWD to Consider Stage 4 Water Restrictions

Board will meeting late January

View Comments (


    More than 1 million water customers face the possibility of Stage 4 restrictions.

    Mike Rickman, of the North Texas Municipal Water District, said board members would consider starting Stage 4 restrictions earlier than expected. The board will decide in late January.

    Stage 4 restrictions would mean water customers could not water their yards or wash their cars.

    The district is currently under Stage 3 water restrictions, which allow outdoor watering once per week.
