City officials say Henrietta has been under Stage 3 since August, 2012.
If they had elevated to Stage 4 it would have prohibited residents from washing vehicles, filling swimming pools and using hose end sprinklers.
Only watering on designated days with hand- held hoses or buckets would have been allowed.
City Administrator Kelly Bloodworth says council members decided to continue closely monitoring the situation.
