  在前所未有的夏季热浪中,休斯顿市实施了强制性的水源保护措施,以应对持续的干旱。酷热干燥的气候条件给得克萨斯州居民带来了重大挑战,特别是在休斯顿,水管破裂问题不断升级,水压问题仍然存在。

  市长西尔维斯特·特纳(Sylvester Turner )强调了需要额外的承包商来解决日益严重的水管问题,同时承认了自然力量的不可控影响。他说:“在面对大自然的力量时,我们必须尽力应对这场危机。”

  休斯顿市公共事务主任卡罗尔·哈多克强调了通过与本地承包商合作,将水消耗减少10%的目标。哈多克指出:“我们的团队正与合作伙伴通力合作,努力修复遍布整个城市的水泄漏。”

  社区被敦促减少随意浇灌草坪,这被视为在德克萨斯州东南部的干旱期间优化每一滴宝贵水资源利用的关键步骤。尽管承认干旱对草坪造成的影响,重点仍然是共同采纳节水实践。

《旱情应急计划》中概述的第二阶段限制如下:

  • 住户地址为偶数的街道可以在周日和周四的晚上7点到凌晨5点之间浇水。

  • 住户地址为奇数的街道可以在周六和周三的同一时间段内浇水。

  • 周二和周五是其他所有客户的浇水日。

  • 任何导致水流流入相邻物业、道路或排水沟的室外用水都是被禁止的。

  违反这些规定可能会导致初次违规的书面警告,随后的违规行为可能会根据德克萨斯州地方政府法典第54.001节的规定,每次违规行为可能会被处以高达2000美元的罚款。

  居住在附近地区,如凯蒂和汤伯尔的居民已经受到强制性限制的约束,而密苏里市的某些地区将从周一开始实施类似的措施。

  在贝拉尔、鹿园、富尔希尔、加尔维斯顿、拉波特、帕萨迪纳、珍珠港和罗森堡等地,鼓励居民自愿进行节水。主要信息强调在这些时期避免不必要的用水的重要性,以防止加剧已经逐渐恶化的困境。


Houston Announces Mandatory Watering Restrictions Amid Drought

Amid an unprecedented summer heatwave, the City of Houston has instituted mandatory water conservation measures to combat the ongoing drought. The scorching and arid conditions are causing significant challenges for Texans, particularly in Houston, where water main breaks are escalating, and water pressure issues persist.

Mayor Sylvester Turner emphasized the need for extra contractors to tackle the escalating water main problems while acknowledging the uncontrollable influence of nature. He stated, "We're compelled to manage this crisis as best we can in the face of Mother Nature's might."

Houston Public Works Director, Carol Haddock, highlighted the city's aim to curtail water consumption by 10% through collaborative efforts with local contractors. Haddock noted, "Our teams are working industriously alongside contracted partners to mend water leaks spanning the city."

The community is urged to cut back on indiscriminate lawn watering, a step seen as vital to optimizing the utilization of each precious drop during this southeastern Texas drought. While acknowledging the toll the drought has taken on lawns, the focus remains on collectively embracing water-saving practices.

Stage 2 restrictions outlined in the Drought Contingency Plan are as follows:

  • Houses with even-numbered street addresses are permitted to water between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Sundays and Thursdays.

  • Houses with odd-numbered street addresses can water on Saturdays and Wednesdays during the same time frame.

  • Tuesdays and Fridays are designated watering days for all other customers.

  • Any outdoor water usage that results in runoff onto adjacent properties, roads, or gutters is prohibited.

Transgressing these regulations may result in a written warning for initial violations, with subsequent infractions incurring fines of up to $2,000 per instance, as stipulated in Section 54.001 of the Texas Local Government Code.

Residents in nearby areas such as Katy and Tomball are already subjected to mandatory restrictions, while certain sections of Missouri City will implement similar measures starting Monday.

In Bellaire, Deer Park, Fulshear, Galveston, La Porte, Pasadena, Pearland, and Rosenberg, water conservation is encouraged voluntarily. The prevailing message underscores the significance of refraining from unnecessary water usage during these times to prevent exacerbating an already escalating predicament.
