Houston is asking its more than 2 million residents to conserve water amidst moderate to severe drought conditions.

The Texas city activated a plan on Tuesday calling for “Stage One” conservation measures following an observed drop in rainfall and higher-than-normal temperatures.

“During the st month, the City of Houston has had record-setting high temperatures above 90 degrees and a significant decrease in rainfall,” Houston Public Works said in a release. “As a result, most of Houston’s service area is experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions. These conditions call for implementation of Stage One water conservation measures.”

The plan instructs people to limit outdoor watering to twice a week between 7 pm and 5 am CDT.

Water customers are also reminded to check and reir water leaks and sprinkler heads.
