CRSUD received a letter from TCEQ on January 11, 2012 concerning the drought projections for 2012.  The following paragraph is a quote from that letter:
"This past year was the driest 12-month period in Texas history.  Although recent rains and cooler temperatures have offered some temporary relief, groundwater and surface water supplies have been drawn down and have not recovered.  Meteorologists project this drought will continue through the summer.  These projections make it critical that water systems prepare for water shortages and possible outages.  Recently, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) monitored several water systems that were within 180 days of completely running out of water.  These systems had two things in common:  they relied on a single source of their water supply, and they had not made contingency plans for securing alternate sources of water."
CRSUD will remain in Drought Contingency until TCEQ releases us.  We do thank you all for your help in this conservation effort.  We are so grateful for the recent rains.

CRSUD is reducing Drought Contingency from Stage 2 to Stage 1 Voluntary conservation. We are asking you to observe your alternate days as listed below.  We need to reduce the water demand during the peak times between 5:00 pm and 11:00 pm.  Please refrain from outside watering during this time and water in the early morning hours if possible.  We are asking you to alternate watering days based upon the last digit of your account number.  Those numbers ending in an even digit water on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Those account numbers ending in an odd digit water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  Automatic sprinklers should be set to come on after midnight.  TCEQ has advised us that we are looking toward another summer similar to 2011. Being pro-active now and each of us doing our part in conserving water perhaps we can avoid stricter, mandatory restrictions if the drought continues.  Call the office at 903-984-8014 if you have any questions. 


Due to the recent rains and the reductions in water usage, Cross Roads Special Utility District is rescinding Stage 1 of their Drought Contingency plan effective March 1, 2012.  This stage was seeking voluntary reductions in water usage.  Even with the recent rains easing the water demands, good water conservation habits are encouraged to help prevent water shortages in the future.  The TCEQ has notified us that we are looking to have a summer very similar to the summer of 2011.  Thank you for your cooperation.  You did a great job!
