The City of Kerrville has issued the latest winter storm developments for the area on Friday.
WATER: The City of Kerrville has restored water to most areas of Kerrville, but there are still some outages in the Keystone and Summit subdivisions. Anyone still experiencing water outages is asked to call (800) 298-5910.
The boil water notice will remain in effect until proper water pressure is established system-wide, which will probably be Monday, at the earliest. The City of Kerrville will issue notification of the end of the boil water notice as soon as possible. In the meantime, continue to boil drinking water for two minutes.
STREETS: KPD is reporting a moderate amount of glaze on local roadways, but streets in town continue to improve as temperatures continue to rise. There are still patches of black ice on roadways, so drive with extreme caution if you must get out.
KPUB: The Kerrville Public Utility Board is reporting sustained power throughout the city.
SHELTERS: With the exception of the Salvation Army, local shelters will be closing Friday. Citizens still needing shelter should go to the Salvation Army at 855 Hays Street, Kerrville.
GARBAGE SERVICE: Garbage service will return to normal next week, beginning Monday. Republic Services will allow extra garbage to be put in recycling carts for pickup next week.
WATER CUTOFFS: The city has received questions regarding whether or not anything needs to be done when water is restored. In general, the answer is no.
Water customers should continue to check around their residence and outside for any leaks after water service is restored. Service will be restored gradually, and oftentimes, freezing pipes become evident after water is restored.
Anyone experiencing water leaks can turn the water off using the customer hand valve on the customer’s side of the meter. If you do NOT have a hand valve, please call the city to have the water turned off because a special tool is required to keep from damaging the equipment.
