CORPUS CHRISTI -- A restriction on water usage is likely by the end of the week, city officials said Monday.
A stage two restrictions will be implemented no later than Friday when city reservoir levels are expected to drop below 40 percent, Assistant City Manager Oscar Martinez said.
That means between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., sprinklers are prohibited and all hoses must be handheld.
Martinez said city officials expected the water levels to drop by January. He said the restrictions will likely be in place until spring, but could be lifted if there is significant rainfall.
Mayor Nelda Martinez will hold a news conference on Thursday.
