Cedar Park water customers prohibited from using irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers for outdoor watering September 21-October 4
BCRUA, Cedar Park’s secondary water treatment plant, making scheduled, critical repair to underwater pipeline
The Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority (BCRUA) is a regional water utility, of which Cedar Park is a member. The BCRUA serves as Cedar Park’s secondary water treatment plant, providing approximately 20 percent of Cedar Park’s total daily water use.
The BCRUA has scheduled a critical repair to its underwater raw intake pipeline in Lake Travis, Wednesday, September 21 through Tuesday, October 4. During this repair, Cedar Park water customers are prohibited from using irrigation systems or hose-end sprinklers for outdoor watering. This is because during the BCRUA repair, Cedar Park will be relying solely on the City of Cedar Park water treatment plant.
The City of Cedar Park has a secure water supply and is confident that indoor use will not be impacted. The City of Cedar Park will share repair updates as they become available.
The City has a hotline for reporting outdoor water usage violations: 512-401-5308. Violations may also be reported online at www.cedarparktexas.gov/report-it.
For more resources on how to manage your water use, the City of Cedar Park offers water-saving tips, information on rebates and resources and a digital metering portal at www.waterthriftycedarpark.org. The digital metering portal allows customers to monitor water usage in near real-time, set up customized alerts and detect water waste.
This notice applies to City of Cedar Park water customers only. The BCRUA is a partnership. Each city has a different response based on their water system. Please refer to other member cities for their specific information.
