Looking for water main break, city officials urge conservation

From the city of San Marcos

San Marcos residents are asked to minimize water use tonight and avoid any outdoor watering as the city’s water utility continues to track down the source of a widespread water outage that has left various areas in the city with no water or very low pressure.

No water main break has been discovered since the outages began being called in around 4:30 p.m. today, said Assistant City Manager Laurie Anderson.

Areas most affected include Sunset Acres, Highway 123, the Wallace Addition, and the medical center area on Wonder World Drive, including Central Texas Medical Center. The hospital has implemented emergency steps to provide air conditioning and water supply.

Calls have also come areas ranging from Aquarena Springs Drive to Clovis Barker Drive.

Residents who are experiencing low pressure or no water should boil their water when service is restored as a precaution, city officials said. To report a water outage, residents may call 393-8010.
