Here is a list of the recent drought timeline for the city of Wichita Falls
If the city of Wichita Falls goes back down to Stage 3 or Stage 4 then the surcharge rate would go back down.
The change will ban "all outdoor, non-essential, or discretionary uses of water."
As lake levels this week hit 26.8% it's important that everyone remembers that every drop counts, especially when we hit the stage 5 water emergency.
Vernon city officials are working on several projects to keep water flowing to residents.
Lake levels are now at the 30% capacity mark and the city of Wichita Falls expects to be under a Stage 4 Drought Disaster Saturday.
