New Braunfels Utilities and the city of New Braunfels have extended water station service at the Civic Center, located at 375 S. Castell Ave., and the NBU Service Center, located at 355 FM 306, until Saturday, Feb. 20.
In addition to water from the NBU system, the Civic Center location will also offer water that has been purified and does not need to be boiled.
Update: 8:15 a.m., Feb. 19
In addition to a water station that was established at the New Braunfels Civic and Convention Center, five additional locations will open Feb. 19 for residents to access water.
The additional stations will be open from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and include the following:
New Braunfels City Hall, 550 Landa Street
NBU Main Office, 263 Main Plaza
NBU Service Center, 355 FM 306
McKenna Events Center, 801 W. San Antonio Street
Landa Haus, 360 Aquatic Circle
The Civic and Convention Center will continue to operate as a warming center and has potable drinking water and dry goods available.
On Feb. 19, NBU announced that it had identified 5,000 customers with continuous water consumption, which indicates significant leaks. The system typically pumps 10-12 million gallons of water per day during winter months but is currently pumping 28 million gallons as a result of leaks.
For additional information about leak locations in the service area, customers can view the NBU water outage tracker online and are encouraged to report any leaks, low water pressure or total loss of water.
