Galveston, TX – Dec. 21, 2018 – Water is off to all users between Lake Madeline and the east side of 99thStreet (approximately between Lake Madeline Bridge and Campeche Cove) while city crews repair an overnight break in the main water line running along Jones Drive.
This area includes: Moody Gardens, Oppe Elementary School and several neighborhoods, as well as other businesses.
The break is in a 20” inch water line near the airport pump station, which resulted in the loss of water.
This area will not have water for the next several hours. At this time, we estimate the break could take two to four hours to repair, but this is an early estimate.
We do not yet know the cause of the water line break and will have more information after we assess the line.
We understand the inconvenience this causes for all affected people and we are working as quickly as possible to carefully assess and repair this line. We will provide updates as more information is available.
APPROXIMATE AREA: Eastern boundary – Lake Madeline; Western Boundary – 99thStreet; Northern Boundary – Offats Bayou; Southern Boundary – Seawall Boulevard
