Repairs to a Major Water Main to The Island Postponed

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Repairs scheduled to begin late tonight on a major water main that provides services to The Island have been postponed. Today, the contractor overseeing the project determined additional parts are needed. Those parts have been ordered and are expected to arrive tomorrow, Monday, February 22.

Should the additional parts arrive tomorrow, the repairs will begin tomorrow night. While water service to The Island will be temporarily turned off, the water in the Coral Vine Elevated Water Storage Tank and the Sand Dollar Ground Tanks will provide ample water during the overnight construction period. Nonetheless, it is recommended that Island water customers conserve water during the overnight hours on February 22.

Corpus Christi Water Utilities mission is to provide clean and quality water and wastewater services that respect our environment and our customers can depend on.
