Water supply tank levels this morning are holding steady but not increasing. We are trying to avoid another shutoff by taking proactive measures to conserve our water supply.
The City has restored water to many areas served by the 30th Street pump station and the airport pump station, though we are aware that numerous residents remain without water. We are working to get it restored island-wide.
We will keep the water service on as long as possible, though intermittent disruptions may be necessary as we attempt to stabilize the water supply due to major water line breaks across the island.
As work continues to repair broken water mains, there will also be isolated shutoffs. If your home is experiencing water leaks, we recommend shutting off the water locally until a plumber can address the leak. If you are experiencing a water leak, or notice a broken water main, and need assistance with turning the water off, please contact the Municipal Utilities Department at 409-797-3630.
Please conserve water by using it only for essential tasks. Please limit shower times and avoid letting faucets run. Remember, we remain under a boil water advisory, meaning water for human consumption should be boiled first and cooled before drinking.
Thank you for your resilience and patience. We assure you we are working around the clock to secure water service.
