The Huey Road water tank was at 60 percent capacity by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, hours after repairs were made to a break in a water line. The amount of water in the 500,000 gallon tank was significantly reduced earlier in the day following the break in a 12-inch line at a construction site near Loop 121 and U.S. 190.
By 3 p.m., an alert asking residents to conserve water was removed from Belton's website and City splash pads were reopened.
City crews were notified of the break at 7:30 a.m. It was isolated by 9:30 a.m. Once the break was contained, City crews made adjustments that allowed for the tank to be refilled more quickly.
The City received reports of low water pressure in the area near the break, and service may have been interrupted for some customers during the repair, but a boil water notice is not required.
The break occurred on a water line that will be abandoned as part of a project to build a new gas station at the location.
