FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The second fastest-growing city in the country has revised its water restrictions due to low lake levels from Texas' ongoing drought.

A release from Frisco says the city council voted at a specially called meeting Saturday to curtail watering with automatic sprinkler systems to once every two weeks beginning June 29, instead of once a week as laid out in the city's Stage 3 restrictions.

Parts of Texas are in the fourth year of drought. Water levels in many lakes across the state have not yet recovered from 2011, the driest year ever in Texas.

The city took the step at the urging of the North Texas Municipal Water District, which last month voted to extend Stage 3 watering restrictions to once every two weeks through October 31.
