CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The City of Corpus Christi could announce water restrictions as soon as next week.

During Tuesday's City Council meeting, Corpus Christi City Manager Peter Zanoni announced the combined levels at Lake Corpus Christi and Choke Canyon are at 40.1-percent.

Once we drop below 40-percent, restrictions will be put in place. Zanoni said the city is expected to make announcement on this on Monday next week. If restrictions are put in place, residents will be restricted from watering their lawns once a week. The City Manager will designate the day when residents will be allowed to water their yards.
Since we're not expected to see any rain anytime soon, he's asked Corpus Christi residents to save water.

"We do need to be vigilant and we need to stretch our water as long as to sustain our water. Our slogan is "A little bit of water goes a long way," Zanoni said.

The City of Corpus Christi uses the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to monitor our weather conditions. The NOAA has forecasted our drought conditions could last until April.

In the meantime, Zanoni encouraged residents to go to the city's website to find ways to conserve water. Click HERE for more information on how to conserve water.
