The water has been off since Wednesday around 5:15 p.m, when a crew contracted by the city broke a water line at west White Street and South Powell Parkway. The water line was to be moved to make room for a road expansion project.
The city hopes to complete the repair on Thursday morning. Once water service resumes, a water boil order will be in place until further notice.
The city manager says it’ll take as long as 48 hours to get full pressure back for everyone.READ MORE: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Refuses To Hand Over January 6 Records
Officials have been distributing bottled water to residents since Wednesday evening.
The water main break is the third such break this week in north Texas. On Tuesday night, a hole in a water main sent a high pressure geyser rocketing toward a Fort Worth home. A similar incident damaged several homes in northwest Dallas on Monday.
