City of Harker Heights Drought Response Stage 1
The City of Harker Heights enters Drought Response Stage 1 – Voluntary Water Conservation effective July 18, 2018.Stage 1-Voluntary Water Conservation
The goal for Stage 1 is to voluntarily reduce daily water demand by raising public and customer awareness of water demand conditions. The Brazos River Authority has triggered their Stage 1 Drought Watch Condition for Lake Belton based on the Palmer Hydrologic Drought Index (PHDI). The PHDI is an indicator for how wet or dry conditions are within a particular area. Stage 1 is triggered when the PHDI is equal to or less than negative two (-2). Due to the drier than normal conditions in the Brazos River basin, the monthly PHDI has dropped below the -2 trigger for Lake Belton. Water use customers shall voluntarily limit outdoor water use by participating in the watering schedule for outdoor water use effective July 18, 2018.
