The water line break appears to have been caused by a vehicle that crashed into a light pole, which damaged the water line underground.
Citizens and businesses across the City of La Marque may be experiencing low water pressure due to a water main break, but crews expect water pressure to stabilize in time for dinner tonight, Tuesday, September 17, 2019. The water line break appears to have been caused by a vehicle that crashed into a light pole, which damaged the water line underground.
“Citizens are reporting low water pressure, but no one is without water to our knowledge,” said City Manager Tink Jackson. “This is not a maintenance issue, but an accident caused by a third party. We understand the frustration and our crews are working around the clock to get it fixed.”
