Crisis Averted

Grand Prairie water shortage ends two days after main line break

Grand Prairie water shortage ends two days after main line break

Grand Prairie residents can breathe (and drink) easier now. The city's water supply is back to normal after a main line break August 12 sent the area into crisis mode.

Despite the fact that the city's main line has been repaired, a few minor line breaks around town have caused some residents to be without water this morning. City spokesperson Whitney Fowler says these breaks are unrelated to issues with the main supply line.

"We are working on those as fast as we can," Fowler said in a statement. "Hats off to the Water Crews for their hard work in difficult conditions and to this wonderful community for cutting back use the past few days so that we never ran out of water as predicted." 

Grand Prairie is still under normal water restrictions due to drought conditions and no outdoor watering is permitted today, August 14.
