Water pressure issues county-wide, Harris County officials say


Water utilities are being impacted by the state energy issues.

The hits simply hold coming. 

If you went to mattress with water, it’s possible you’ll be waking up with low — or no — water pressure. 

Nearly all components of Houston and Harris County are experiencing issues, in line with ReadyHarris.

Water utilities are struggling to function in mild of the state energy issues.

OEM says this is not going to approve till extra energy is restored. 

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is urging residents to be conservative with water utilization. He is asking everybody to cease dripping taps to maintain pipes from bursting and switch water off if they’ve burst. 

“Be conservative with water usage today,” the mayor tweeted. “It is needed for hospitals and fires.”

If you continue to have water, there are some things you are able to do to arrange:

  • If you do not have bottled water, fill a pitcher with water till you will get it. 
  • Fill a glass with water for brushing tooth
  • Make certain pets water bowls are full
  • Fill a pot with water for flushing the bathroom.

Harris County and Houston haven’t issued boil water notices however a number of space cities and MUDs have. Here’s the checklist, which will likely be up to date, as wanted.
