Water turned back on for residents near Greenway Plaza after city officials repair water main break

HOUSTON – Several residents who live on the west side of Houston say they were without water for several hours after a water main break Thursday evening.

According to officials from Houston Public Works, the main is located in the 3700 Block of Timmons Lane which is west of downtown. HPW says the 16-inch main broke as a result of normal wear and tear which comes with aging.

Repairs to the pipe was complete on Friday by city officials.

Additionally, city staffers say the water has been turned back on but residents in the area may experience low or no water pressure.

Staffers from an apartment complex in the area sent the following message to their tenants:

The repair has been completed by the city. The water is being turned back on. As the water turns back on the water pressure may be low. It should normalize shortly.

We do have more breakfast that just arrived in the office, if you stopped by earlier and we were out.
