The Trinity River Authority is requesting that residents and businesses in the cities of Bedford, Colleyville, Euless, Grapevine and North Richland Hills voluntarily reduce water consumption for the next 24 hours.
The request is part of a precautionary measure to offset low water levels in some of the cities’ above-ground water storage facilities.
"These low water levels are the direct result of an unanticipated delay in restoring full operations at TRA’s water treatment plant following a shutdown to complete expansion-related construction. TRA’s request is related solely to the quantity of water available to the cities’ storage tanks, as the quality of the water remains excellent," the TRA said in a news release Thursday.
The TRA adds that all of the water treatment plant equipment is once again fully operational and hope that reduced consumption overnight Thursday will help fill the storage tanks.
