The recent rains were not quite enough to change the City of Cleburne's current drought conditions. The City is still under Stage 2 watering restrictions.
Stage 2 is initiated by the City Manager when mild drought continues, lake elevations have continued to decline and long-range weather and soil moisture conditions point to continuance of drought conditions.
- Non-essential water use will be prohibited. Non-essential is defined as washing house windows, siding, eaves, and roof with a hose without the use of a bucket and a hose cutoff valve; washing driveways, streets, curbs and gutters; washing vehicles without a hose cutoff valve and bucket; draining filling swimming pools; and flushing water systems.
- Outdoor unattended use of water will be permitted only one day each week and only within the designated hours. There will be no watering from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Attended watering with a hose with a spray nozzle with a shut off or watering with a bucket will not be restricted. Drip irrigation and use of soaker hoses will be restricted to the twice per week schedule.
