Cedar Park Urges Water Conservation After Main Damaged

The City of Cedar Park is asking people to stop watering their lawns and avoid any non-essential water use like washing cars or filling swimming pools.

That’s because a construction crew working on a residential development near Lakeline and Buttercup Creek Boulevards damaged a 36-inch water transmission line today.

Cedar Park says fewer than ten houses are without water, but it’s asking everyone to reduce water use until the line is fixed. The repairs are expected to be done within 48 hours.
