City of Galveston under mandatory water conservation while supplier repairs its leak
Press Release
Friday, November 09, 2018

(NOTE: Water Restrictions were delayed until Wednesday,  November 14 - Notice)

Galveston, TX – The City of Galveston will be under mandatory water conservation restrictions beginning Monday, Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. as its water supplier assesses a water leak in a line serving many municipal customers.

The Gulf Coast Water Authority intends to mobilize maintenance crews on Monday, Nov. 12, to determine a repair plan. The water authority will shut down the line during the assessment, and water will be re-routed to the City of Galveston through other water lines. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, the repair plan may vary and change the restriction schedule.

At this time, from Monday, Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. to Saturday, Nov. 17, the City of Galveston will be under mandatory water conservation restrictions. Under these restrictions, residents and businesses should avoid unnecessary water uses, including watering a lawn or washing a car. Residents should take other steps to curb water use, such as only doing laundry when they have a full load or after altering the water level.

There shall not be any flushing of the City’s fire hydrant system and contractors working on City projects shall not provide any service that will conflict with the City’s water conservation mode.

The 42” water line operated by the Gulf Coast Water Authority serves customers in Galveston, Tiki Island, Bayou Vista, Hitchcock and Santa Fe, as well as portions of La Marque, Dickinson and League City.

For water conservation tips, please visit Follow the Gulf Coast Water Authority on social media for updated repair information next week. The City of Galveston will also provide updates to keep our residents informed.
