The leak that was recently discovered in the Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority (BCRUA) underwater intake line has grown significantly and we must reduce strain on the system by reducing water usage during the repair. Cedar Park has implemented temporary water restrictions specific to irrigation uses – as lawn irrigation is our largest source of water use. Effective Friday, September 9, only handheld hose-with-water-shutoff sprayer-watering, soaker hoses and drip irrigation are allowed. All other forms of irrigation are prohibited: including irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers. This applies to all Cedar Park residential and commercial water customers. No other outdoor water uses are affected at this time.
- Crews are continuing to work around-the-clock on the underwater repairs
- Everything’s going as-planned, with estimated completion date still on track for Oct. 4
- we thank you for continuing to not use irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers during this repair
- Reminder: handheld hose-watering with water shutoff sprayer, drip irrigation and soaker hose-watering are allowed during this repair
- The City of Cedar Park will continue sharing updates on repair progress
