Drought Restrictions in Effect 

The City of Corpus Christi implemented Stage 1 drought restrictions on June 14, 2022. The City of Portland purchases its water from the San Patricio Municipal Water District, which purchases water from the City of Corpus Christi. Under the purchase agreement, the City of Portland is contractually obligated to abide by the same restrictions and actions as the City of Corpus Christi. As a result, violations may result in a citation beginning, Monday, July 25. The City of Portland Drought Contingency Plan (PDF) outlines the violation citation in Section 23-123. 

For additional information concerning drought restrictions or to obtain a permit for certain watering variances, please contact public works at 361-777-4601. 

The City of Portland thanks residents for your adherence to the restrictions in place.
We appreciate your help in conserving water for our community!
