And Dean Olson in the public works office says a committee will have to decide whether a switch is worth the anticipated cost.

The City of Houston will be forced to shut off water to everyone in town on Thursday morning at 9 AM. The primary water main serving the city on Grant Street has a major break. It is unknown how long thew water will be off. The city says they will be working diligently to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Home owners on the city water supply may want to stock up on water by pre-bottling it or purchasing bottled water. You will be able to flush your toilet but it will not refill the tank. Another hint from the city........pre-fill your bathtub with water and you can use a bucket to refill your toilet tank when necessary.
If you have any questions, contact the Houston City Offices.
