City of Vernon moves from stage 3 to stage 1 water restrictions

VERNON, TX (KAUZ) - The city of Vernon is going from stage 3 water restrictions to stage 1 effective today. Stage 3 is known as mandatory water restriction while stage 1 is voluntary.

Well levels have risen considerably due to the amount of rainfall the city has received in the last month.

With stage 1 the reduction of water use is only 15 percent, compare that to stage 3 when 25 percent of water usage was trying to be reduced.

The  days of watering at stage 1 for odd numbers are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for even numbers and hours for both are  8pm-10am.

Vernon will keep an eye on things to decide if they need to raise water restrictions later on.
