Water Restrictions Urged as Line Break Affects Water Supply in Canyon Lake, Surrounding Areas
SJWTX, also known as Canyon Lake Water Service Company, today advised customers who live on the north side of Canyon Lake, Spring Branch and Bulverde to limit water usage to indoor-only as crews work to repair a water-transmission line break near its Park Shores Water Treatment Plant.
The water-main break could impact the ability to restore water supply in storage tanks for those areas, the company said on its website.
“Until further notice, we ask that all customers in the impacted area limit water usage to indoor-use only and refrain from landscape watering,” SJWTX said. “Customers with odd-number addresses should not engage in landscape irrigation today. Wednesday is a non-watering day for all customers.”
Meanwhile, the City of Blanco moved into Stage 5 water restrictions after SJWTX notified it that Canyon Lake reached its capacity due to high usage in the Canyon Lake area.
Blanco is now relying on its reserve water tank, according to a statement posted on the city’s website.
The move could result in terminating water service to some users, the city said.
At around 6 p.m., the city posted on its Facebook page that the leak has been identified and is being repaired, but the city will remain at Stage 5 water restrictions through Wednesday.
“Until then, please comply with restrictions so that all citizens of Blanco have water for home usage.”
It remains unclear as to whether there was more than one leak in SJWTX’s transmission lines. SJWTX did not mention Blanco in its statement or immediately respond to a request for comment.
