The City of Galveston’s Development Services Department will not accept new water and sewer tap applications effective today at 1 p.m. and until further notice.
The department will continue to service repairs to existing water and sewer infrastructure and will complete line tap work orders already submitted; however, the department will not accept new water or sewer line tap applications. The city is suspending these new applications, which typically are received for new construction homes, apartments and businesses.
The City is taking this action amid concerns about COVID-19 and to allow the crews to shift their focus to more urgent situations and to reduce public exposure.
