The city of Victoria ended all drought contingency restrictions Thursday.

Water levels in the Guadalupe River have increased recently and the flow on the Guadalupe River remained consistently above normal throughout January, according to a news release from the city.

The city's drought contingency plan allows the city to terminate Stage I restrictions when the flow remains above normal for a period of 14 consecutive days.

The normal flow rate for each month of the year, which is based on historical flows, is provided in the city's permit to divert surface water from the Guadalupe River that is issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Although the Stage I restrictions have been terminated, residents are encouraged to conserve water at all times.
