Power restored at wastewater treatment plant in Port Lavaca

AEP restores power to 1500 customers in Port Lavaca

PORT LAVACA, Texas- Power is now restored to the wastewater treatment plant in Port Lavaca. Power also restored to several subdivisions including Lynnhaven, Brookhollow, Brookhollow Estates, Bay Vista and LaSalle Landing.

AEP reports it restored power to approximately 1500 customers.

The City of Port Lavaca wrote this on its Facebook page:

“Give us some time to pump down the Main Lift Station and continue to turn off valves to direct water to the tower and restore pressure. Once pressure is restored in the tower, we will begin bringing service areas back on line. Once we’ve restored pressure and services we must submit samples for testing before we can rescind the boil water notice. So best case scenario we are still looking at a few days for potable water to return, but this is an essential first step. It will help out if you will report any apparent water leaks by messaging us here on Facebook. The phones have not been working.”

 

GOOD NEWS!! Power has been restored to the Wastewater treatment plant as well as Lynnhaven, Brookhollow, Brookhollow…

Also, the City of Port Lavaca and the Six-Mile Volunteer Fire Department will provide bulk water until about 6 p.m. Thursday. The water will need to be boiled for two minutes before consumption.

This is Thursday at the Bauer Community Center Parking Lot. You can enter from Broadway St.  Bring containers to fill up such as ice chests, empty water jugs, and buckets. Although the water is from the GBRA water plant, because it will be transported in a tanker which is not certified for potable water, the water will need to be boiled for two minutes prior to consumption (washing hands,/face, brushing teeth, drinking).
