University Park spokesman Steve Mace sent out the following alert just before noon today. I apologize for not posting it sooner, but I was having a snowball fight with my son:
Due to the loss of electricity to the City’s water pump station, the City is directing residents to minimize water use until power is restored throughout the City. This directive covers all non-essential use of water. To make sure the City has an adequate amount of water during this time period, the City is connecting the University Park water system to the Dallas water system.
Many homes in University Park remain without electricity. Service to many households may not be restored for at least 24 hours.
