As of Friday afternoon, the City of Kerrville is still working to restore water in the Summit subdivision and will continue to do so until water is fully restored. City emergency staff delivered more drinking water to the Summit Friday.
Residents who are still without water should call (800) 298-5910 or (830) 257-8181. Kerr County residents who live outside of the city limits should contact their service provider with any reports of outages or requests for assistance.
The boil water notice will remain in effect until proper water pressure is established system-wide, which probably won’t be until 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, residents are asked to boil drinking water for two minutes. Boiling water is not necessary for cleaning, washing, bathing or cooking.
Everyone is being asked to practice extreme water conservation for essential water uses throughout the weekend. This practice will help the system catch up, re-pressurize system-wide, and shorten the need for the boil water notice.
KPD is now beginning to reopen city streets and is reporting that the roadways are in good shape. Another hard freeze is expected for Friday night, travelers are asked to exercise extreme caution.
The Salvation Army at 855 Hays Street will continue operating as a shelter. They open at 6 p.m., require ID’s, and do not take pets. Anyone needing shelter with medical needs is asked to go to the Peterson Regional Medical Center emergency room.
Garbage service is scheduled to return to normal beginning Monday, and Republic Services will allow for extra garbage to be put in recycling carts for pickup. Recycling pickup will not take place next week.
Republic Service will use Friday, February 26 as a day for picking up brush/yard waste. Please be advised that the usual limit of two cubic yards is still in effect.

H-E-B, Walmart and area gas stations are currently being replenished by their respective vendors now that Interstate 10 has been fully reopened.
