MARLIN, TX — Marlin's water is restoring after a week-long struggle with repairs at the Marlin Water Plant.

According to Marlin Mayor Carolyn Lofton, water has now been restored but officials are asking residents to limit their use today if they have received water thus far.

"The plant will need until tomorrow to fill all 4 towers," said Marlin Mayor Carolyn Lofton. "The plant needs 24 hours to fill each tower with the 150,000 to 250,000 gallons they require. If you are first to receive water and you use all of the water in the first tower, it will take days to get water to the rest of the town."

Lofton says they are continuing to have some issues at the water plant that they are correcting. Water is being produced but it is limited.

"Please refrain from laundry washing, car washes, etc. today," Lofton said. "If you own a laundromat or car wash, please remain closed in an effort to conserve water."

Mayor Lofton also reminded residents that they are under a boil water notice.
