Rupture in Transmission Line Impacts SJWTX Customers on North Side of Canyon Lake and 281 Corridor

This Canyon Lake Shores Surface Water Treatment Plant features two ClariCone® clarifiers, each with the capacity to treat three million gallons of water a day. Within this primary treatment phase, the water is pre-chlorinated to help manage organic matter in the water and a coagulant is utilized to allow solid particles to cling to one another and sink to the bottom.

A rupture in a main transmission line near SJWTX’s Canyon Lake Shores water-treatment plant impacted water delivery to the northside of Canyon Lake today.

Areas along the U.S. Route 281 corridor through Bulverde also are affected by the break.

SJWTX, formerly known as Canyon Lake Water Service Company (CLSWC), asks all customers in these areas to limit their water usage to indoor-only and avoid landscape irrigation.

“We are asking all customers on the northside of Canyon Lake from Mystic Shores and along the 281 corridors through Bulverde to limit water usage to indoor-use only (no landscape irrigation) until 8 a.m. Wednesday,  April 14,” the utility said in an email to customers. “As SJWTX is currently on a year-round watering schedule, this should only affect customers with an address that begins with 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.”

Wednesday is a “non-irrigation day” for all customers.
