Belton Water Conservation Alert Lifted Early

BELTON (July 23, 2014) Belton officials lifted a 24-hour water conservation alert Wednesday afternoon, less than eight hours after a break in a 12-inch line at a construction site near Loop 121 and U.S. Highway 190.

The break was reported at around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and the water flow was shut off by around 9:30 a.m.

By 3 p.m., with the Huey Road water tank at 60 percent capacity, the city lifted the alert and reopened Belton’s splash pads.

Low water pressure was reported in the area near the break and service for some customers may have been interrupted, but a boil order isn’t required, the city said.
