1/3 We continue to see improvement in water pressure in our water distribution system. This morning, the South and Northwest A zones moved from Red (Water Outage) to Orange (Low Pressure). Individual water pressure and service may vary from house to house within a zone.
2/3 Storage in our water reservoirs has climbed to 72 million gallons. We need at least 100 million gallons in storage to help build water pressure system-wide. We urge customers with water service to limit water use to essential needs and follow mandatory water restrictions.
3/3 Violations of these restrictions should be reported to Austin 3-1-1. Visit our Operational Updates page for more information: austintexas.gov/article/operat…

We are now producing and delivering more water than our city is consuming, allowing us to add excess water into our reservoirs, which is critical for system health. Please read our latest update at austintexas.gov/article/operat…
With warming temperatures and improved road conditions today, expanded deliveries of supplies and equipment have begun to flow into our facilities. Allowing for expanded water treatment capacity.
Should current trends continue, and with the help of our customer sustained efforts to cut water use across the city, customers could see improvements in water service as early as the end of the weekend.

Austin Water's treatment plants are operating in a stable mode at this time, but we are facing significant challenges to restore water distribution throughout the system. The citywide boil water notice continues, and all customers are asked to boil water for drinking and cooking.
Austin Water is working with the City's Emergency Operations Center to address the needs of critical customers, including hospitals and power plants. We do not have a timeline on when full service will be restored at this time.
We know that some customers do not have water service and returning your service is our priority. Austin Water will provide additional updates as they become available.
