Leander has lowered its water restrictions to Stage 2 as of Sept. 21, according to the city. The reduced restrictions are a result of lower water usage and lower temperatures since the summer.


Stage 2 restrictions include limiting outdoor irrigation to no more than twice a week between 7 p.m.-10 a.m. Watering days have been expanded to include the following.

  • Monday: No watering

  • Tuesday: Commercial and multifamily customers

  • Wednesday: Odd-numbered residential addresses

  • Thursday: Even-numbered residential addresses

  • Friday: Commercial and multifamily customers

  • Saturday: Odd-numbered residential addresses

  • Sunday: Even-numbered residential addresses


In July, the city moved to Stage 3 water restrictions due to "severe water storage conditions," which were partially created by residents spending more time at home during the pandemic. Additionally, a boil water notice was issued July 18-23 after a plant power outage. The notice affected over 20,000 water customers, according to the city.
