NewsChannel 11 wanted to find out why the crews are moving a major water line during the summertime, when people traditionally use more water.
Deputy City Manager Tom Adams says getting the money approved was not a fast process, "We actually bid this project out and council approved it back in January. We didn't get the permit from Txdot to approve the location until March 5th. So we're moving as quickly as we can."
The city is on a deadline to have the entire water main project finished by August. But the water line work is expected to be finished by the end of the month. For now, residents can only water their flowers and gardens by hand.
Anyone caught watering their lawns while the restrictions are in place will receive a warning. If they continue, they will receive a citation.
