League City water still restricted during line repairs
Emergency water rationing in League City remains in effect as crews work to repair a leak in the city's major water transmission line.
Due to the leak, water pressure might fluctuate in neighborhoods citywide, and should remain particularly low in eastern portions of the city. As of June 21, the city said it expects repairs to be completed by Saturday, June 23.
Water use restrictions correspond to Stage Three of the city's Drought Contingency Plan. Stage Three rationing measures include the prohibition of landscape irrigation; vehicle washing; filling, refilling or adding to any indoor or outdoor pool; and the use of water in ponds or fountains, except when necessary to support aquatic life. The contingency plan can be viewed in its entirety at leaguecity.com/dcp. Failure to adhere to mandated restrictions might result in citations and fines.
In addition, the city pool will remain closed until the leak is fixed and regular water service is restored.
The leak was first discovered on June 21 near the intersection of Calder Drive and Link Road. This particular line supplies approximately 90 percent of League City's surface water supply.
City crews work to ensure the city's available water storage is filled to capacity. In the meantime, the city is drawing water from two other wells and is receiving additional supplies from the Gulf Coast Water Authority and the Water Control Improvement District.
