FORT HOOD, Texas – Effective immediately, Fort Hood is in Stage 4 (Critical) Emergency Water Conservation as a result of an interruption in the main water supply line that serves the post from the Bell County Water Control and Improvement District No. 1 (BCWCID No.1).

Consumption of water by all customers shall be limited to essential use only until the water supply interruption is corrected, which at this point county officials believe to be late Sunday. Customers are highly encouraged to conserve water, using only for drinking, cooking and/or personal hygiene until situation is resolved.

This includes prohibition of lawn irrigation, washing of vehicles, filling of pools, non-essential indoor and outdoor use, etc. The quality of water has not been affected, just the quantity at this point.

Updates provided from the county will be posted as they become available. We encourage all residents to visit the Fort Hood Press Center site (www.forthoodpresscenter.com) and/or III Corps Facebook page (facebook.com/forthood) for updates on this situation.

Copperas Cove and Killeen water supplies are also affected. For information, visit their city Web sites at http://www.ci.copperas-cove.tx.us/ or http://www.killeentexas.gov/.
