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 latest news from around North Texas.
The district is currently under Stage 3 water restrictions, which allow outdoor watering once per week.
