HAWKINS, TX — Hawkins City officials are asking residents to voluntarily curtail water use.
The move came after a 500,000-gallon water storage tank was shut down for repairs.
Repairs are set to begin today, and the tank may be out of service for 52 days.
“Any water uses that are not essential for health, safety and sanitary purposes should be voluntarily reduced,” officials said.
Hawkins has one other storage tank that holds about 200,000 gallons of water and a tower that holds 250,000 gallons, but service may be strained due to the drought conditions, said Utility Operator Mike Mayberry.
