On Monday, June 27, the City will begin emergency repair activities on a 24-inch water line near Louisiana Street and State Hwy 96. This waterline serves a critical role in providing water to the City’s eastside service area. The leak is located in an area with difficult access and will require the City’s contractor to utilize a temporary construction entrance at Louisiana and Hewitt St. The duration of the repair is expected to be two to three weeks.
Although no interruption of service is expected, the City will be Implementing Stage 1 (Voluntary) of its Drought Contingency Plan, which asks residents to voluntarily limit outdoor watering. For more information about the City's Drought Contingency Plan visit https://www.leaguecitytx.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4782/Drought-Contingency-Plan-2019 and read below.
