City Crews to Repair Major Water Main that Services the Island

Island Customers be Alert for a Possible Loss of Water Service

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Residents on The Island should be prepared for a possible disruption in water services beginning Sunday evening at 11:55 p.m. The planned outage is anticipated to last six to seven hours.

A large 24 inch main that acts as the main artery of water service to The Island requires repair at a section of the pipe near the Texas Sea Life Center.

During the repair period Sunday to Monday, The Island will get water from the Coral Vines elevated water storage tank and the Sand Dollar Pump Station ground storage tanks. During The Island’s lowest water demand window, which is overnight, the water tanks will serve customers for six hours. If crews are still undergoing repairs past the tank’s supply capability, The Island could experience a loss of water service until crews are able to complete their work and the main is back online. 

The City recommends that Island water customers conserve their water use where possible during the repair window Sunday night into Monday morning.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact the City of Corpus Christi Call Center at 361-826-CITY (2489).
