Additional restrictions possible if heat, drought continue
Mesquite’s water supplier, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) is requesting the public voluntarily reduce outdoor water use due to high demands on the water system. Additional water restrictions could be necessary unless water use is closely controlled from late July to mid-September. High temperatures and continuing drought conditions can increase the demand for water that could exceed NTMWD’s full treatment plant capacity. If NTMWD nears its full plant capacity, additional restrictions may be required.
