UPDATE: NOTICE OF IMPLEMENTATION OF DROUGHT STAGE 3
Released from Cross Roads Special Utility District:
Due to the unreasonably hot and dry conditions this summer, Cross Roads Special Utility District is announcing the initiation of Stage III of the Drought Contingency Plan effective immediately. We need to reduce the demand for water. The aquifer's water level has dropped low enough that our well pumps are not able to pump full capacity in order to keep up with the current demand. We are asking all customers to cease outside watering and any unessential water usage until the conditions change.
Call the office at 903-984-8014 if you have any questions.
