Residents in Rockwall will see an increase on their water bills in January, with a 10 per cent increase approved by the Rockwall City Council effective December 1st to offset a 10 per cent increase in the cost to the city for treated water supplied by the North Texas Municipal Water District, which was put into effect last month. The water district supplies treated water to the cities of Forney and Terrell, as well as Rockwall. Due to the drought conditions, the water district also recently extended stage 3 water restrictions to be effective November 1st through March 31, 2015. As of Monday, November 17th, the North Texas Municipal Water District reported the four reservoirs from which it obtains water for treatment remain low in spite of recent rains. Three of the four, Lavon, Jim Chapman, and Tawakoni all remain about a foot below normal conservation levels, while Lake Texoma is nearly 7 inches low.
