Lufkin water restored, residents asked to conserve
Lufkin — An electronic problem at Lufkin's water supply has been corrected Thursday morning after the entire city without water overnight Wednesday.
According to city manager Paul Parker, a large circuit breaker at the water plant on Martin Luther King Drive went out Wednesday evening. Due to a glitch with an alarm system that monitors city equipment, the issue was not discovered until about 4 a.m. Thursday. City workers and contractors labored through the early morning hours to correct the issue and had everything restored around 7 a.m., Parker said.
