Draining Holly Road Elevated Storage Tank

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX –Construction of the new Holly Road Elevated Storage Tank (EST) is nearly complete and the tank will be placed into service within a few weeks. As part of the commissioning process, aged water in the tank will need to be drained and refilled to help ensure that water quality standards are maintained in the distribution system when the tank becomes operational.    

Residents should continue inspecting all faucets, pipes, hoses and connectors. Homes with irrigation systems will need to be adjusted. For toilet inspection, the City has FREE leak detection tablets available at the Information Booth at City Hall, 1201 Leopard Street and at the Utilities Department, 2726 Holly Road.
