NBU consistently monitors multiple climate and utility operating system factors to prepare for and understand the severity of each drought we face.

Stage 2 Restrictions in Effect

New Braunfels was in Stage 3 for nearly a year. Now that the J17 monitoring well is reading above the Stage 3 level of 640 feet, and the Comal Springs is registering more than 150 cubic feet per second (cfs), the City of New Braunfels Mayor Neal Linnartz has declared Stage 2 Drought Restrictions effective Monday, May 29, 2023.

In Stage 2, watering with a sprinkler or irrigation system is allowed one day per week based on the last digit of your address BEFORE 10:00 a.m. and AFTER 8:00 p.m.
