Don’t even think about planting grass. For the moment.

Canyon Lake Water Service Corporation (CLWSC) said today if pressure testing this week proves successful, new lines could be brought into production by Friday, allowing the utility to move more water, faster, into its storage facilities in River Crossing, Singing Hills and Bulverde.

Technicians are testing new water-transmission lines around and south of the intersection of Highway 281 and the Guadalupe River, according to an email sent to customers. The lines were flushed earlier this week, and bacterial samples were negative, allowing pressure testing to proceed.

According to a water advisory issued this afternoon by Canyon Lake Water Service Corporation (CLWSC), conditions in water-storage facilities on the north and west sides of Canyon Lake, including Spring Branch and Bulverde, have not sufficiently recovered to move this service area out of emergency conditions.

All landscape irrigation and grass-watering also is suspended, and customers are asked to continue to limit their water usage to essential indoor-use only.

Areas still under emergency water conditions include north side and west side of Canyon Lake including Mystic Shores, Rebecca Creek, River Crossing, Singing Hills, Hidden Trails, Edgebrook, Copper Canyon and the cities of Bulverde and Spring Branch.

All other areas are under the year-round watering schedule implemented earlier this summer.
