Water conservation is a priority for the City of Schertz. While the City’s water supplies are sufficient, high water demand can create system-wide fluctuations in water pressure and challenges in maintaining ideal water storage levels. This is especially prevalent in the summer months when we experience less rain and extremely high temperatures. This unfavorable combination often leads to an increase in water consumption across the City as residents try to maintain their luscious green lawns. The City encourages residents to conserve and preserve our community's most precious resource.
If dry conditions continue, residents should be prepared for restrictions to be placed.
