LEAGUE CITY — Water use will be limited to essential indoor use only twice in the coming weeks as crews make repairs to a water main. The city announced Wednesday that it will enact Stage 3 water restrictions on June 17 and again on June 24.
The water restrictions will be necessary because of shutdowns of a 42-inch water line that is the primary water delivery route to League City from its largest water distribution facility, which is located along state Highway 3 in Webster. Crews will be installing several valves needed for construction at the water facility.
The shutdown of the water line will last 10 to 15 hours each day, city officials said.
The city’s Stage 3 Drought Contingency Plan has several mandatory restrictions that ban almost all-outdoor water including the use of sprinkler systems, washing down sidewalks or driveways and the washing of vehicles.
Commercial car washes that have water-recycling systems are exempt from the car washing prohibition.
Violators could face fines of $500 plus court costs each day that one or more restriction is violated, officials said.
