Water service has been restored to parts of Weatherford a day after a pipeline break virtually shut down the city.
Assistant City Manager Robert Hanna said an alternate pipeline was being used Tuesday to restore water pressure. He said emergency water restrictions and a boil notice remained in effect.
Hanna said officials hope to have service restored to the entire city by Wednesday. He said engineers were working on a permanent fix to the broken pipeline. He said the cause of the pipeline’s failure was unknown.
Most city services were shut down in Monday’s triple-digit heat. Tankers brought in water to keep some services running, and portable toilets were set up.
