DRINKING WATER DISTRIBUTION SITES (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

What should I do if I am without water? If you have a leak/outage/broken pipe, report it online or call 512-972-1000 immediately. If you don’t have water or if your pressure is currently low, your faucets do not have to be open when water is restored. To ensure water pressure has returned, open one faucet at the highest level. If water begins to flow, move on to your next faucet and repeat the process. Ensure all lines are flushed to remove air or debris.

I need to take a shower and do laundry, but I don’t have water. Click here for a list of Central Texas locations offering free showers and laundry services.

Austin Disaster Relief Network Clean Up Hotline:

Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), Central Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (CTX VOAD), and the volunteer management platform; Crisis Clean Up are collaborating with the Counties of Bastrop, Hays, Travis, Williamson to include the cities of Austin and Round Rock in a massive “Clean Up” effort. This effort has begun today to assist Central Texans in clearing homes and removing debris as a result of the recent winter storm. Homeowners who have few resources and abilities can request assistance in the removal of fallen trees, limbs, interiors of home water damage, and other storm-related damage.

Residents in Bastrop, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties can call the “Crisis Clean Up” toll-free number at 1-800-329-8052 requesting assistance to clean up their home and/or debris. Home cleanups will take priority between the two. Client information will then be shared with a network of volunteer organizations. These organizations will coordinate cleanup with homeowners and will ultimately deploy their volunteers to homeowner locations to assist in clearing the debris and removing interior water/storm-related damages.
