Central Texas Groundwater Conservation District has implemented 15% MANDATORY Drought Water Reductions effective for all exempt and non-exempt water wells. The MANDATORY Reductions are effective January 1 through December 31, 2023.
This will reduce the City of Highland Haven groundwater permit from 82 acre feet to 69 acre feet; therefore, all Highland Haven water customers are required to reduce water use immediately.

The City of Highland Haven Board of Alderman will be reviewing and updating our drought contingency plan to comply with our reduced water permit.
