East Texas cities rationing water supply
BULLARD — The city of Bullard is just one East Texas city that's decided to urge its residents to cut back on their water usage. Although, the request isn't a manditory one, Bullard City Manager Larry Morgan says the measures are working. Bullard, like many East Texas cities, is feeling the effects from the lack of rainfall and drought weather conditions. This combination is putting pressure on city officials to think of ways to conserve water. One option would be a future waterline from Lake Jacksonville or Lake Tyler. However, the city does have a back-up well on standby, and will use it first before looking at other options. Meanwhile, Morgan says he expects water bills to continue to rise as water usage in Bullard continues to grow.
