Why Houston residents north of I-10 might have low water pressure

HOUSTON – Houston residents who live north of I-10 might experience low water pressure over the next two weeks due to repair work in the area, according to the city.

The Houston Public Works Department will be repairing a large raw water line that serves as the primary source for the City of Houston East Water Purification Plant on Federal Road.

A 102-inch water main will be shut down from Friday through March 9.

The city said the repair work might cause lower water pressure than normal, but added that water service and quality should not be affected. 

Anyone with concerns is asked to call 311.
