Mayor Details Revised Drought Contingency Plan

Corpus Christi, TX – The revised Drought Contingency Plan approved on May 30, 2017, takes effect today. During a morning news conference, Mayor Joe McComb detailed the plan stating there are currently no water use restrictions and that the City will respond proactively to droughts as they occur.

Stage 1, of the Drought Contingency Plan, was modified from always being in effect, to being activated when the combined capacity of Choke Canyon and Lake Corpus Christi fall below 50%, or when Lake Texana falls below 40%. The City encourages wise use of our water resources and reminds customers to avoid watering from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. due to high evaporation rates.
