Southlake Water System Update 

The City of Southlake has received bottled water from the State of Texas for distribution to Southlake residents during the boil order on Friday, February 19. One case of bottled water is available per Southlake resident household, while supplies last. COVID-19 protocols are in place. Please stay in your vehicle and open your trunk/hatchback and volunteers will load the water into your vehicle. 

Location: Gateway Church 

Date: Friday, February 19 

Time: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (or while supplies last)  

Water has been steadily coming into our system throughout the night. While our tanks are beginning to fill up, an exact timeline of when the water will reach every home is unclear. We are much closer to achieving this goal than we were yesterday morning.  

We’ve heard that some of you have a little water coming out of your faucets. If that is the case, that is good news. But, be sure to conserve, using water only for necessities. It helps replenish the system and our homes and businesses that much faster.  

Don’t forget that we are under a boil water notice and that any water that you or your pets are going to consume must be boiled first. 

 

 

Electric Outage 

Tri-County Electric posted to their Facebook page that most members have had their power restoredERCOT still lists the grid at Level 3 Alert, but the load shed requirements remain at zero. Tri-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 posted the press release from ERCOT to their social media channels, stating that significant progress was made to restoring outages, but some people around the state still do not have power. ERCOT states there is not additional load shed requirements for the grid, but that some level of rotating outages may be needed over the coming days.

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.

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.
