TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Travis County Water District 10 issued a boil water notice Thursday morning as Austin Energy crews work to restore power after an outage at the McConnel Pump Station.
The District originally asked its customers to conserve water Wednesday afternoon while the repairs were underway.
The district said Thursday that some residents are experiencing water outages. As a result of customer reports of area water outages and low water pressures below 20 PSI, the District issued a precautionary District-wide boil water advisory.
Residents are asked to immediately begin to conserve water to ensure we limit interruptions to water service.
The emergency requests are not for the City of Austin, but do cover West Lake Hills and the neighborhoods of Westwood, Rolling Hills West, Knollwood, Westlake Highlands, Sundown Parkway, Camelot and Rob Roy Ranch, according to the district’s website.
In total, the district serves approximately 10,000 people, according to its website.
District 10 general manager Carla A. Orts said in the statement that conservation would help the area avoid interruptions to water service.
In a post on Twitter, Austin Water stated that its treatment plants are operating normally.
