The city of Harker Heights wants residents to conserve water as part of the Stage 1 drought contingency plan.

Residents are asked to voluntarily limit outdoor watering to once every five days. Outdoor water use is discouraged between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. except with hand-held hoses, according to a news release from the city.

The Brazos River Authority announced a Stage 1 Drought Watch was triggered Friday, which happens when the organization’s 11 reservoirs reach less than 1,514,536 acre-feet of water.

Harker Heights receives all of its treated drinking water from Belton Lake.
