Wichita Falls Public Information Officer Barry Levy sent word this afternoon that combined lake levels have reached a very critical point.  According to a press release,  as of  July 2nd, the combined level of Lakes Arrowhead and Kickapoo dropped below 50% and are now at 49.8%. The City will now increase patrolling for water violators and will forward all Notices of Violation to the Municipal Court for prosecution.  Stage 2 Drought Warning Water Use Restrictions are as follows:

1.  All irrigation (residential and commercial) will be reduced to once a week, Monday through Friday, based on the Water Rationing Zone Map (found on the City’s website, www.wichitafallstx.gov).

2.  No irrigating on weekends.

3.  No spray irrigating between the hours of 11am and 6pm, on any day (year round restriction).

4.  No washing of vehicles, except at a commercial car wash, detail shop, car dealership or automotive shop.

5. No fund raising car washes

6.  No washing sidewalks, driveways or concrete slabs, unless it is an immediate health risk.

Forecast models call for little to no chances for rain over the next 10 days.
