CITY OF SMITHVILLE WATER PRESSURE UPDATE

The loss of water pressure in our community over the weekend was due to a communication failure with the system that activates pumps that fill the ground water storage tanks and water towers. The system requires AT&T phone and internet service which we all know were down. The issue was resolved within a couple of hours when the pumps were activated manually and the water towers began to refill. At no time was there any contamination or loss of pressure that required issuing a “boil water” notice. However, some citizens noticed discoloration in their water once the pressure was restored. Any discoloration of the water was due to dirt (light brown-yellow), rust (reddish-brown), or air (white with bubbles) in the line that typically clears after running the water from a faucet for 5-8 minutes. If you are still having issues or concerns with your water, please contact City Hall on (512) 237-3282.
