Water pump repair update for June 28

Jun 28, 2018

This past weekend there was a large water pump failure that reduced pumping capacity. The repair was successfully completed last night and the pump has been placed in service. City staff is monitoring and testing the system to ensure the replacement pump is operating correctly. All customers should be experiencing normal water pressure. If you do not have normal water pressure please call 512-930-3640.

Suspension of outdoor irrigation and unnecessary water use is still in effect until the City ensures the system is operating at full capacity. Hand watering is permitted at this time. The affected area is generally west of the City of Georgetown and around Liberty Hill. For a map of the area where irrigation is still suspended, please click here.

All notices related to lifting the boil water notice were hand-delivered by 6:30 p.m. yesterday. Updates on this situation will continue to be posted at Georgetown.org. A reminder to ALL Georgetown customers – #NoWateringMonday!
