Drought continues to suck the Coastal Bend dry, and by this time next month, Corpus Christi is expected to be under mandatory water restrictions.
City officials said they are ready with their plan of action.
At Williams Park, just like other parks around town, the grass is bone dry. Some patches have no grass at all.
Combined lake levels are at 44-percent capacity right now, and next month we should hit the 40-percent mark which triggers mandatory water restrictions.
Assistant City Manager Oscar Martinez said the restrictions would limit the time in which you water your grass. "It's just being more cognizant that you're watering at periods of time during the day that will maximize that water being used usefully rather than just seeing it evaporate into the air," he said.
The city gets around 40-percent of its drinking water from Lake Texana. Officials said that if it did not rain for the next three or four years, we would still have enough water.
So next month at this time, you will not be able to water between 10 a.m.-6 p.m. You can't let the water run into the street, and you have to have plumbing leaks repaired in and around your house.
The city is currently under voluntary water restrictions.
