According to the drought requirements on the City of Corpus Christi’s web site, Condition II drought restrictions go into effect when the combined level of Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon Reservoir goes below 40 percent of system capacity.
At that point, Corpus Christi water regional supply (including Corpus Christi and neighboring communities) will be restricted from using water for irrigation of vegetation between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
In addition, no person may:
(1) allow water to run off from yards or plants into gutters or streets,
(2) allow defective plumbing in a home or business to remain unaddressed or
(3) allow water to flow constantly through a tap, hydrant, valve, or otherwise by any user of water connected to the city system.
Ginter said the city will issue telephone messages to residents this weekend via Blackboard Connect.
The pre-recorded messages will go out to home and cellular phone numbers throughout the weekend.
