You may notice a faint odor in the drinking water during the last week of June up until July. It is due to a process that helps prevent chlorine build-up in water mains and burns off excess ammonia in the Lockhart water distribution system. Flushing of the water distribution system at fire hydrants near dead end water mains continues; this help eliminate the residue odors. If the odor of your tap water is still strong, please contact the Water Department at (512) 398-3615 during normal business hours or the Lockhart Police Department at (512) 398-4401 before or after normal business hours.
The water has been and continues to be tested. The water is safe to drink.
