Iowa Park residents are now under stage four water restrictions.

Monday night city leaders there voted to move into the next stage of restrictions, effective immediately.

City Manager Mike Price says the new restrictions, now in place, mirror Wichita Falls restrictions. 

He did say councilors made one change to the proposed ordinance and voted to not allow residents to use soaker hoses to water the foundations of their homes.

Price says a new surcharge has also been added for folks who use over 8,000 gallons of water, but those additional charges will not be seen until the next billing cycle.  He says that will give residents a chance to adjust their water use habits.

Burkburnett officials also decided to move into stage four water restrictions at their Tuesday night meeting.

The next stage of restrictions will go into effect in Burkburnett on November 25th.
