AUSTIN (KXAN) — Even as more people around Austin have water service restored and the rescinding of the city’s second-ever boil water notice, the City of Austin is still holding free distribution sites for those who haven’t had service restored.
The demand for the sites is shrinking, a city press release says, but some areas — particularly apartment complexes — are having issues reviving service.
The City will operate free water distribution sites at the following locations Wednesday:
- Nelson Field, 7105 Berkman Drive
- Roy G. Guerrero Park, 400 Grove Blvd.
- Onion Creek Soccer Complex, 5600 E. William Cannon Dr.
- Lago Vista City Hall, 5803 Thunderbird, Lago Vista, Texas 78645
- Village of Point Venture Offices, 411 Lohman Ford Road, Leander, Texas 78645
- Jones Brothers Park, 10301 Lakeside Dr, Jonestown, Texas 78645
There’s a website dedicated to what people should do in the event they need to make repairs to homes due to storm damage, and there’s also a hotline to call to ask more questions. The number to call is 512-974-1500 and it’s operated 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Meals are still being distributed at the Millennium Youth Complex located at 1156 Hargrave St. It’s a drive-thru distribution event that runs from 10:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. If you’d like to volunteer, go to the city’s website to sign up.
In Round Rock, Mission Church will hold a food and water distribution site from 6-8 p.m. at 2120 N. Mays St.
