The city of San Marcos is set to enter Stage 2 drought restrictions April 17 at noon, a month after entering Stage 1 restrictions, according to the San Marcos Conservation Coordinator Jan De La Cruz and the Edwards Aquifer Authority.
The water level 10-day average fell below the mean sea level, triggering the implementation of Stage 2 drought restrictions.
Residents must reduce water intake by 20% and are permitted to water their property and wash their cars once per week based on the last number of their home address under Stage 1 restrictions, which will remain in effect.
Under Stage 2 restrictions, the use of hoses, sprinklers and other irrigation systems is restricted to before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m., whereas in Stage 1, it was allowed any time of day.
