Trophy Club Municipal Utility District No. 1 (TC MUD 1) is implementing Stage 1 water restrictions effective Monday, June 3 due to low water supply levels. Below average precipitation and higher than normal temperatures since 2011 have resulted in a multi-year drought. Since officials expect to reach the 75% level of available water supply by early June, City of Fort Worth, the TC MUD 1 water supplier, has initiated Stage 1 of the Drought Plan.

The primary goal for Stage 1 restrictions is to significantly reduce outdoor watering, which…
