(KXAN)  No construction of new swimming pools will be allowed in Lakeway, Texas as long as the drought exists, the city said on Tuesday.

The move is in conjunction with an emergency order issued on Monday pertaining to landscape installation requirements.

"As the declaration of a new drought of record is imminent, non-essential uses of limited potable water must be curbed," said Lakeway City Manager Steve Jones.
