[ARCHIVED] PUBLIC WORKS | LOW PRESSURE

PW-low-water-pressure

The PW Department is working to resolve a low water pressure issue in the area of Azalea & Ross. We have identified that a waterline leak exists, but have not pinpointed the location. We are adjusting system valves to restore pressure ASAP

UPDATE [Jan 25, 2022]

We adjusted valves last night to restore pressure. We had no calls last night for low pressure. However, we are bringing in larger flows from GCWA - we are meeting with staff again this morning to review plans to find the leak.  All Public Works staff is assigned to this problem – including Street and Operations.

Most likely this leak is in an unpopulated area or running underground to the Bayou -- We will be performing some system isolation tests using control valves in an attempt to pinpoint the leak location – during those valve shut-downs, there may be a short time of low water pressure in the affected areas.

PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU NOTICE RUNNING WATER ANYWHERE IN LA MARQUE.

UPDATE [Jan 24, 2022] 

City Staff in Public Works has been continuously working to address this issue. We are currently opening control valves - staff is verifying pressure at specific points around the city. 

We understand this inconvenience and are focused on fixing.
