 Texas After Brief Outage

As part of utilities work to facilitate construction of the Interstate 30/SH 360 Interchange Project, the City of Arlington Water Utilities planned to replace two 12-inch water main valves on Ballpark Way today, June 15.

The valves were shut off yesterday evening in preparation for the work. A pre-test conducted last week showed the valve shutoffs would not affect park operations because of other existing water lines to the property. However, the park experienced an unexpected loss of water today due to the valve shutoffs.

Once the City was made aware of the issue, Arlington Water crews worked quickly in coordination with the park and the Arlington Fire Marshal to complete the necessary valve replacements, restore service to the park and ensure the safety of guests.

Water service was fully restored to the park at 1:15 p.m. By 2:20 p.m., water pressure returned to normal inside the park.
