Missouri City Water Conservation – Mandatory Conservation Rules Lifted as of October 9, 2023

Effective Monday, October 9, 2023, the City is rescinding all Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) water conservation measures.

This includes rescinding both mandatory and voluntary water conservation measures that were in effect since August 28, 2023.

The recent rainfall and lower temperatures have helped in reducing domestic water demands, and hence these DCP measures are no longer necessary.

Fort Bend County MUD 47 (the District) and Missouri City Public Works would like to thank the residents, businesses, and various utility entities for their cooperation in implementing the water conservation measures.

Revised Stage 2 Mandatory Water Conservation

Fort Bend County MUD 48 (FB48) revised its Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) on September 14, 2023 to follow that of Missouri City’s (the City) DCP.

This REVISED Stage 2 Notice is updated to reflect those changes. To view the FB48 DCP, visit www.fbmud48.com. To view the City Water Conservation information, visit www.missouricitytx.gov/1192/Missouri-City-water-conservation.

Due to worsening drought conditions, on August 28, 2023, the City of Missouri City implemented mandatory water conservation in some areas of the City INCLUDING FB48 which is within the City’s Mustang Bayou Service Area. These measures were put into effect because water systems are not able to keep up with high demand especially during the “Peak Demand” times in the early morning hours when most irrigation occurs and as residents take showers, wash laundry, and prepare meals. Irrigation usage is the largest user of water. The Ground Storage Tanks (GSTs) at the water plants need to maintain water sufficient to fight fires and to provide potable drinking water to customers.

ALL outdoor water usage, including, but not limited to, lawn and garden watering, car washing, and window washing, shall be limited as follows:
