COPPERAS COVE, TX — As a result of the extreme weather conditions and prolonged power outages, as well as reduced water supply being delivered from the City’s water provider, the City of Coppers Cove has implemented Stage 4B of the Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan.
While the water system improved slightly overnight, the Mountain Top Pressure Plane can only be charged when demand decreases in the Central Pressure Plane, the city said.
"In other words, storage levels have not improved enough to assist with pushing water/pressure up to the Taylor Mountain storage tank leaving approximately 1,200 customers without water."
Effective immediately, the City of Copperas Cove has implemented Stage 4B of the Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan.
"We understand many customers are currently without water service for various reasons, however all citizens and businesses are encouraged to review and be familiar with the Stage 4B restrictions as they are outlined HERE.
Any person who knowingly or intentionally allows the use of water in violation of the City of Copperas Cove’s Water Conservation Plan may be issued a citation by a City of Copperas Cove employee for a Class C Misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $100 - $2,000 upon conviction. Violations will be strictly enforced, according to the city.
Similar notification will be provided when the Stage 4B restrictions are either rescinded or revised.
