SAN ANGELO, TX — Water pressure is coming back to the upper plane of the San Angelo water distribution system. Overnight, the City reported positive progress refiling the water towers and tanks around the city.
We confirmed with residents on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 21, that in Southland, Lakeshore Village, on Fisher St., and The Bluffs there is normal water pressure. Other areas that previously did not have water reported low pressure remained, such as in College Hills near Angelo State University. Further out in areas like Buffalo Heights water pressure remains too low.
The City is still urging water customers to conserve water and allow all of the storage tanks to completely fill.
In the meantime, all of the non-potable water sites close at 2 p.m. today except for the site at San Angelo Stadium. The site at San Angelo Stadium will close at 6 p.m. today.
Rust Street Ministries, 803 Rust St., remains open until 5 p.m. today for the distribution of food, if anyone is in need.
The City of San Angelo Water Utilities system went down due to low water pressure caused by the frigid outside air temperatures starting the evening of Feb. 14. City water utilities crews have been working around the clock since then primarily fixing more than a dozen water main breaks caused by the frozen water. Residents and business owners who were also impacted were aided by city water crews. Customers with leaking or busted pipes had crews shut down or disconnect water feeds to affected addresses temporarily until repairs could be made.
