The Big Spring City Council decided on Tuesday to move from Stage 3 water restrictions -- which are mandatory -- to Stage 2 restrictions -- which are voluntary.
The decision follows similar decisions in Midland and Odessa.
The moves for looser water restrictions come after the Colorado River Municipal Water District eased restrictions for the water allotments given to member cities.
C.R.M.W.D. was able to loosen restrictions on water allotments after West Texas reservoirs received a major boost in water in recent months.
C.R.M.W.D. wants people to use the water area water sources gained during rains this year before it can be lost in evaporation.
However, Big Spring leaders are still stressing conservation efforts.
Big Spring leaders are also encouraging people to only water when they're supposed to.
"If somebody violates [voluntary water restrictions], it they're not going to get a citation, but we still want you to water at a certain day and a certain time," Big Spring Assistant City Manager Todd Darden told Big 2. "We're giving you more days to water and we're giving you a pick of your choice of what time you want to water."
Darden added that Big Spring could bring back Stage 3 restrictions if people abuse their watering.
