COMAL COUNTY BURN BAN OFF
Saturday September 8, 2018 11:00 a.m.
Outdoor burning in unincorporated Comal County is once again allowed after County Judge Sherman Krause lifted the burn ban. On Saturday the Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI), which measures soil dryness, dropped below 500, the threshold at which the burn bans are typically implemented. As of 10 a.m., it had fallen to 462.
“Recent rains provided enough moisture to make outdoor burning safer in most areas of the county,” said Comal County Fire Marshal Kory Klabunde. “However, parts of the county, especially in the east, are still very dry, so please use caution and keep a water source nearby if setting a controlled fire.”
More information is available on the Fire Marshal Office’s webpage, mycomalcounty.com/Fire_Marshal.htm.
Please check Fire Marshall's burn information before any outdoor burning in Comal County.
DROUGHT RATIONING IMPLEMENTATION
June 1, 2018
Effective June 1, 2018, Canyon Lake Water Service Company (CLWSC) is implementing Stage 1 Drought Rationing in the CLWSC service area. High temperatures and below-normal rainfall have resulted in high usage within the systems, so the following outdoor rationing will be required to maintain available water supplies for the health and safety of the public. Stage 1 rationing will last until further notice, but not longer than 60 days.

- Even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Monday and Thursday
- Odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Tuesday and Friday
- No address or more than one address: Monday and Friday
CLWSC may enact the following penalties for violations of the rationing requirements:
- First Violation: CLWSC will issue a written warning.
- Second Violation: CLWSC may install a flow restrictor in the customer’s service line. The cost of this shall be the actual cost to do the work and not exceed $100.00.
- Subsequent Violations: CLWSC may terminate service for up to 7 consecutive days and charge the most current reconnection fee to restore service.
Please note that second and subsequent violation penalties will not be carried out without investigation or observation by CLWSC.
