Watering Restrictions

Belterra Residents and Water Customers – We have been notified that, due to lower demand on water treatment and distribution systems, the WTCPUA has rescinded Stage 3 drought restrictions effective as of today. We appreciate your efforts in reducing water use while Stage 3 restrictions were in effect.

Please note that even though Stage 3 restrictions are no longer in effect, outdoor watering is still limited to twice per week on designated watering days. Please refer to the District website (www.hayswcid.org) to determine the designated watering days for your residence – the WTCPUA watering day schedule does not apply in Belterra. Also, while other use restrictions are no longer subject to enforcement, voluntary compliance is encouraged.


Watering must occur between the hours of 7 p.m. - midnight and midnight - 10 a.m.. Please see the schedule map below:

This schedule only applies to automatic and hose-end sprinklers customers can water anytime with a hand-held hose.

Violators of the above schedule could result in a minimum $200.00 charge on your monthly water bill. To help prevent fines the District may leave informational materials on the doors of homes where they spot leaks, improper water and other water wasting activities.

The majority of irrigation used for landscaping, greenbelts and medians in Belterra comes from storm water basins or re-use water. Many of you will notice that shortly after a rain event several sprinklers in the greenbelt areas come on. Many of the water basins in Belterra are designed to capture storm water and filter any pollutants by using irrigation systems.

While the schedule and other water-saving measures are extremely valuable during the current drought conditions, these measures are beneficial regardless of how much (or little) rain our region receives. Long-term, these conservation measures will save you money on your water-utility bills - and they help manage the region's water resources to meet long-term needs. The District appreciates your support in following these measures.
