Revised Water Restrictions

[Stage 3 Water Restrictions]
The City of McKinney has enacted revised Stage 3 water restrictions, which go into effect tomorrow - Tuesday, July 1. Landscape watering using sprinklers and irrigation systems is limited to once every other week, based on recommendations from the city’s water supplier, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD). These new restrictions apply to all homes, businesses and common areas located within McKinney. In addition, irrigation systems equipped with “smart controllers” are not exempt from the watering schedule.
 
Under new Stage 3 requirements, addresses ending in even numbers (with the last digit of 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8) may be watered every other Tuesday, starting July 1. Addresses ending in odd numbers (with the last digit of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9) may be watered every other Thursday starting July 3. Medians and common areas may be watered every other Wednesday, starting July 2.
 
During Stage 3, follow these restrictions:
No watering with an irrigation system between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
No use of water that allows runoff or other water waste
No landscape watering during any form of precipitation
No hydro seeding, hydro mulching or sprigging
30-day exemptions for watering new turf are only allowed for new construction
No turf watering with hand-held hoses, soaker hoses or drip irrigation systems on days other than your designated watering day
During Stage 3 the following is allowed:
Landscape watering using sprinklers and irrigation systems once every other week on your designated watering day
Watering plants, trees and foundations with a hand-held hose using an automatic shut-off nozzle, a soaker hose or drip irrigation system for up to two hours daily
Power washing paved surfaces
Using a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle for washing, rinsing or maintenance purposes
Watering property with an alternate water supply other than treated water
Filling new pools or replenish existing pools to maintain operational levels

Further limitations on irrigation systems used to water landscapes are due largely to below average rainfall this summer and the declining water levels in reservoirs. Continued conservation efforts are in place to minimize the likelihood of reaching Stage 4 drought conditions.

West Nile Virus: Take Steps to Fight the Bite

Severe Weather

Preparing for severe weather and knowing when to act provides the greatest lifesaving benefit in a crisis.

Flash floods are the number one cause of deaths associated with thunderstorms. People most at risk from flash flooding are individuals who attempt to walk or drive through flood waters.  Lives can be saved if residents follow the simple rule:  if there’s water on the road, turn around, don’t drown.

If you are outside and see lightning, move into a sturdy building, stay away from windows and doors and stay off porches and patios.  Avoid electric appliances and anything metal, including plumbing fixtures.  Do not use a land-line telephone. If you must remain outdoors avoid trees, hilltops, open fields, swimming pools, beaches or boats on the water.

Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms.  Most tornado fatalities are caused by flying debris.  If you are inside a building during a tornado, take shelter in an interior room on the lowest floor.  Shelter in a windowless area such as a stairwell, bathroom, hallway or closet.  If you are in a mobile home, get out immediately and take shelter in a nearby sturdy building.

CST Store for SWC of Independence and Westridge
Tuesday, January 6th, 2015 7:30 PM 10256 Millbend Dr. (The Reserve Amenity Center)
The proposed CST convenience store going at the SWC of Independence and Westridge in McKinney. We are orienting the building towards Independence Parkway because it is the more major of the two streets as far as traffic counts. As far as the city is concerned, we are requesting a zoning change to allow for an additional 3 mpds (fueling stations) and a car wash. We think the additional pumps would offer customers faster service because we feel this corner will generate a lot of traffic long term. Also, we think customers will see the car wash as a plus since there are no car washes serving this neighborhood at this time. From a zoning standpoint, we are allowed to do 4 pumps or a total of 8 fueling positions without going through the Specific Use Permit process with the city. We are requesting to add 3 more gas pumps which would allow up to 14 cars to be fueled at one time versus 8 cars at a time which the current zoning allows for. We think the 3 additional pumps will provide faster service and less wait time for customers. We are planning to go before the planning and zoning commission on January 13, 2015. We will make ourselves available to meet with you and any of the board members prior to the meeting to discuss our proposed project. We will meet at The Reserve Amenity Center on January 6, 2015 at 7:30. (10256 Millbend Dr) We hope you will be supportive of our project and we look forward to answering any questions. CST would like to become a part of your community and they provide great service to their customers. Please feel free to call me at (972) 231-8600 Ext. 3 or (214) 732-5471 with any questions.
