Southlake Water System Update 

The water supply from Fort Worth has been constant but at a very slow rate. We expect this rate to increase as Fort Worth’s distribution system gets pressurized. Unfortunately, we do not have a specific time when their system will get pressurized and when the water rate increase will occur.  

We have established an emergency interconnection with Grapevine to help fill our tanks. We understand you want a definitive timeline, and we want to give you one. But we are unable to do so without a sustained flow of adequate water into our system. 

 

Electric Outage 

Tri-County Electric issued an update regarding the outage on their Facebook pageTri-County Electric has requested members who are experiencing an outage of more than three hours to report it online at oms.tcectexas.comthrough the member app TCEC Connect or by calling 817-444-3201. Tri-County prefers notification through the website or app because it is faster. 

Oncor has stated that they have continued to be directed to drop the power load to the grid through maintained, controlled outages. Oncor states they were able to restore some of the previously dropped power load and increased their capability to rotate some outages throughout the territory. However, even with this increased capability, they still have many customers who continue to experience extended outages.
