Travis County approved a water conversation system for the new Family and Civil Courts Facility, which will collect and store rainwater for irrigation. The building will also be piped for possible future connection to the city's purple pipe system.
Due to a water main break, the city of Plano is urging residents to shut off their automatic irrigation systems until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The break, which occurred in Richardson according to a news release from the city of Plano, has also affected water supply to Richardson, Garland, Murphy, Sachse and Wylie.
The North Texas Municipal Water District is expected to restore full capacity of the transmission system over a 72 hour period.
Though Plano is not directly affected by the break, it receives water from the same transmission system, according to the news release. The water conservation measures are precautionary.
NTMWD said in a news release that water quality will not be affected.
