Missouri City ended its drought contingency plan Oct. 9 in light of lower temperatures and increased rainfall in the region.

What you need to know

Residents are no longer under mandatory water conservation now that the drought plan enacted Aug. 28 has been rescinded.

Residents were previously restricted from flushing gutters; washing sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots and tennis courts; and washing or watering buildings or structures at risk of being fined.

According to the city website, the top water use in the city is for irrigation.

“Irrigation systems should not run during rain events or up to three days after a significant rain event,” the city’s drought contingency plan webpage states.

This comes after Fort Bend County also rescinded its burn ban Oct. 6.
