Dear Residents of Clovercreek MUD,
We are pleased to announce a significant update regarding our community’s water usage and conservation efforts. Due to collective efforts and improved conditions, Clovercreek Municipal Utility District is moving from Stage 2 Mandatory Drought Restrictions back to Stage 1, where water conservation measures are now voluntary, effective immediately.
Here’s what this means for you:
- Irrigation Schedule: While we still encourage residents to follow the previously established watering schedules for maintaining landscapes, adherence is now voluntary. Even-numbered addresses are encouraged to water on Tuesdays and Fridays, and odd-numbered addresses on Mondays and Thursdays. This schedule helps ensure the sustainability of our water resources.
- Water Use: The limitations on non-essential water use, including washing vehicles, refilling pools, and operating decorative fountains, are no longer mandatory. However, we urge residents to continue practicing mindful water consumption.
- Leaks and Repairs: We advise all residents to continue monitoring for and promptly repairing any water leaks within their properties. A community effort in reducing water loss has a significant impact.
- Conservation: Voluntary restrictions are not enforceable penalties, but we count on the community spirit and the commitment of our residents to preserve water. Every drop counts!
The downgrade from Stage 2 to Stage 1 is a positive step, reflecting both the improved water availability and the effective conservation efforts by our community members during the period of mandatory restrictions. However, we must continue to be vigilant and responsible in our water usage to ensure the sustainability of our resources, especially as we navigate through fluctuating environmental conditions.
We extend our deepest gratitude to each resident for your cooperation and dedication to water conservation during the mandatory restrictions. Your efforts have played an integral part in this positive development. Let’s continue to work together in maintaining responsible water usage practices, ensuring Clovercreek MUD remains a sustainable and thriving community.
Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support.

An emergency repair on the water line will be taking place shortly.
At this time, it appears that Ashbrook Lane will be the only street affected.
Water will be restored tonight after the repairs are completed, but we do not have a estimated time, at the moment.
Recent water line breaks on Ashbrook and Pine Forest yesterday are a reminder that the dry weather is impacting our water systems.
Please continue to be water wise with your usage and alert TNG if you notice any leaks or drops in pressure.
Recycle service was missed yesterday in the district. They will be back out first thing this morning to recover the pickup. Please leave your containers out.
