Water conservation efforts are still needed, though the situation has improved. Richardson’s water supplier, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD), reports it is able to produce enough treated water now to meet basic water demands.

Crews have also been successful in increasing treatment capacity for city and utility water towers and storage tanks. More water is needed, and it will take a few days to fill all towers and tanks. Until then, the NTMWD requests everyone to continue to use water only for what is needed.
