All drought restrictions lifted as of June 6, 2017

The City of Portland has lifted all current water restrictions. It is no longer operating under drought conditions. 

“While official restrictions have been lifted, we encourage our residents to continue voluntary water conservation measures,” remarked Mayor David Krebs.

The City asks that residents continue wise use of water, especially adhering to the limitation on watering from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Evaporation rates can reach as high as 25 percent for daytime watering—making watering a lawn less effective and more expensive.

Portland purchases its water from the San Patricio County Municipal Water District, which purchases water from the City of Corpus Christi. Under the purchase agreement, the City of Portland is contractually obligated to abide by the same restrictions as that city, which rescinded all water restrictions, effective this date.
