KINGSLAND, Texas (KXAN) — Some residents in Kingsland are without water after flooding damaged water pumps.

People throughout the area are also asked to conserve water, and boil water until further notice.

Both of Kingsland Water’s pumps were “made useless” by the flood, according to Operations Manager Chris Dunbar. Currently, a 300 gallon/minute pump is in use, but can’t keep up with demand. He says a replacement is on site but they have to remove debris and turn off the water before installing the replacement.

People should have water restored by 2 p.m.

Comanche Ranch, Lakewood Forest 1, Bridgepoint and Kingsland Ranch do still have water because their subdivisions use groundwater.
