Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA) expects to complete repairs on its leaking water line by Friday and could have the line back in service as early as Saturday.

Residents in affected communities are encouraged to continue to be conscious of their water use and follow water conservation guidance from their local governments.

Since taking the line out of service early Wednesday, GCWA has been using alternate water lines to supply Galveston Island. Additionally, the communities of Tiki Island, Bayou Vista, Hitchcock and Santa Fe, as well as portions of La Marque and Dickinson, are using their groundwater wells. GCWA continues to update and coordinate with water service providers in those communities.  

Work to repair the line began on Tuesday. After excavating the buried water line, located in a low-lying area under tidal water just off the shoulder of the I-45 feeder road, GCWA identified the leak at a joint in the 42-inch pipe. Repairs using a specially designed joint clamp should be completed late Thursday.

Once repairs are completed, GCWA will flush the line and conduct water quality tests before putting the water line back into service, which could be Saturday.
