Houston Water will begin repair work Friday, February 23rd, on a large raw water line that serves as the primary water source for the City of Houston East Water Purification Plant on Federal Road.

The project requires shutting down a 102-inch (8.5-foot diameter) raw water main that is operated by the Coastal Water Authority.

City Officials said the work should not impact water service or quality, but residents in the area may notice lower than usual water pressure.

The City of Houston said the water pressure may be affected through March 9th.
