City of Colleyville Water Update

The City does not have a water supply issue, and we are not under a water boil. Right now, we do not know yet from the Trinity River Authority if we will be mandated to issue a boil order. Staff has contacted the Trinity River Authority on the hour today for updates regarding the chlorine delivery that is needed to avoid a boil order. Our hope is that the delivery will make it in time so that we do not have to issue one.

The Trinity River Authority has asked Colleyville to conserve water now to make the clean water last until the chlorine delivery. Either way, boil order or not, we will notify the community on, Facebook, and through CodeRed. There will be plenty of water supply for normal activities such as showers, flushing toilets, and washing machines. You will only have to boil water for consumption if a boil order is issued.

Community Rallies Together; Library Opens Doors During Winter Weather Event
stronger together community
Over the past week, we've seen our community do what it does best show compassion and love for each other in times of need! Residents have checked on neighbors, offered rides and transportation, opened their homes to others, aided with water turnoffs and even offered tips on staying warm and winterizing homes and pools.

The Colleyville Public Library became a home-away-from-home this week for many Colleyville and area residents as they sought warmth, food, and electricity from the extreme winter weather, often necessitated by prolonged power outages and burst water pipes. Library study rooms became "suites" for families finding a warm place to sleep and recharge. Corners of the Library became homey places where children were able to play and adults could access building Wi-Fi.

Staff members from various city departments worked to keep the warming center open 24/7 from 4 p.m. February 15 through 8 p.m. February 18. Mayor Newton, City Council members, city leadership staff, and Colleyville Police spent time visiting with residents, listening to concerns, and expressing support during this difficult event.

Many fellow citizens and businesses generously donated food for the Library warming station and our first responders. Many thanks to our wonderful citizens and Red Barn BBQ, Honey Teriyaki Chick-fil-A, My Lan Vietnamese, Cajun Market, Market Street, Braum's, Palio's Pizza, Papa John's Pizza, Kirby's Steakhouse, and Napa Thai Asian Cuisine.
