Urgent Alert: Water Main Break Affecting Murphy - Outdoor watering prohibited until 6PM on Tuesday Sept 4
The water main break that occurred in Richardson Thursday afternoon affects a water transmission system that supplies water to Richardson, Garland, Murphy, Sachse, Plano and Wylie. Murphy receives a significant portion of its water from the same transmission system and is therefore also affected by this situation. The North Texas Municipal Water District is working to restore full capacity of the transmission system. The repair is expected to take at least 72 hours to complete.
***Effective immediately, outdoor watering is prohibited until 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4 at which time the system capacity is anticipated to be restored. These conservation measures are being taken to ensure our water pressure and supplies are maintained at a safe level, until the transmission line can be repaired.
This alert was communicated by Mike Castro, City Manager for the City of Murphy.
