Lake Jim Chapman
New water restriction rules may soon be in place for Irving residents.
North Texas Municipal Water District officials learned Thursday that lakes Lavon and Chapman are dangerously close to being too low for pumping water. The board still voted to extend Stage 3, twice a month watering through October.
Hot weather means extra water conservation restrictions are kicking in across much of North Texas. The area served by the North Texas Municipal Water District has been in stage 1 restrictions since April.
