Water Conservation and Drought Emergency Information

Water Restriction Infographic

The Drought Contingency Plan does not apply to irrigation systems using private water wells or aerobic septic systems; however, properties using such systems must post a prominent, legible sign stating “Water Well”.  It is a separate violation to display a sign which falsely claims the water used to be from another source. 

Please see the City's Drought Contingency and Emergency Water Plan for additional details on triggers, targets, authorized or prohibited uses, and penalties.

Triggers under the regional Drought Contingency Plan are tied to the total amount of water in storage in Choke Canyon Reservoir and Lake Corpus Christi (CCR/LCC) combined. These are now referred to as Reservoir System Stages. 

Rockport buys treated water from the San Patricio Municipal Water District (SPMWD) who, in turn, buys raw water from the City of Corpus Christi. SPMWD and the City of Corpus Christi implemented similar restrictions last week. The City's contract with SPMWD requires the City to follow SPMWD's plan.

Customers with questions are encouraged to contact the Public Works Department at (361) 790-1160.
