COPPERAS COVE — Residents are being asked to voluntarily conserve water use until Water Control & Improvement District No. 1 can repair a mechanical failure.

Residents started noticing a reduction in their water flow Sunday evening. On Monday, city officials confirmed there was a mechanical failure at the water district and that repairs were necessary.

Officials in the Public Works Department said local storage tanks contain sufficient water but are asking residents to conserve water as a cautionary measure. Officials said the quality of the water has not been affected, only the quantity.

There is no estimate on how long repairs will take. For more information, call Public Works at 254-547-0751.
