Drought Response

In response to the severe drought, The City of Seabrook is nearing stage 2 of the Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan to ensure we're using water wisely.

Water Restriction Gauge

Due to the prolonged lack of rain, excessive heat, water breaks, and increased water consumption at peak demand, the City of Seabrook is nearing Stage 2 Mandatory Water Restriction and Conservation levels.  

No different than our partner communities, Seabrook's water systems are pumping at nearly 80% capacity. Additional strains on water demand will hamper firefighters from having an adequate water supply to conduct firefighting operations. Lawn watering and other nonessential outdoor uses can account for 70% of home water waste.  

If the City moves into Stage 2 Mandatory Water Conservation, violations could result in Citations and/or Water Service Termination, as outlined in our Drought Contingency Plan.  

We must all work together to conserve water.

Report Water Waste

  • During business hours: (281) 291-5600
  • After hours: (281) 291-5610

Additional Notice

The City is mixing well water with our purchased Pasadena water to meet demands. Residents will notice a change in taste and smell of the water due to this. The water is tested daily and meets TCEQ standards and is safe for consumption.
