Water conservation urged through November due to Fort Worth project
Plans by the City of Fort Worth to relocate large water lines near our shared border will impact the City of Keller for the next seven weeks, prompting a request for residents to conserve water.
Fort Worth has temporarily suspended a portion of the water supply into Keller and Southlake as part of construction related to the ongoing Park Vista road extension. Redundancies in the city’s infrastructure will keep water flowing to Keller homes, but residents may notice a dip in pressure while those lines are shut off. The system is expected to be returned to normal by Friday, November 24.
“Capacity in our other lines and pump stations is being increased and we don’t anticipate any significant impact to water supply or quality during that period,” Keller Public Works Director Alonzo Liñán said. “However, residents should notify us as soon as possible if their water pressure drops considerably or if they notice any other changes to their water quality.”
The Public Works Department is also asking residents to refrain from filling up swimming pools or installing new landscaping during this time, and to limit their outdoor watering to one day a week until full capacity has been restored.
