At this time, the City’s water system is continuing to be negatively impacted by this weather event.

“We urge ALL CUSTOMERS TO CONSERVE WATER,” a release from Nederland said.

The City of Nederland provides treated water to the Aqua Texas service area by contract; this service area is outside of the city limits.

City crews have been actively pursuing waterline problems and noticed the substantial increase at the Aqua meter that clearly indicated widespread leaks.

After discussing the issue with the public works director and water treatment plant supervisor, City Manager Chris Duque approved the decision as an effort to stop the hemorrhaging of the Nederland Water System.
