City secretary: Cisco 'almost' out of water


CISCO, Texas - The city of Cisco is "almost" out of water in its storage tanks, the city secretary told KTXS.

The flooding damaged water pumps which stopped pumping water into the city's tanks.

Tammy Osborne, the city secretary for Cisco, said engineers are at the water plant trying to find an alternate way to pump the water.

Osborne said officials are not sure when water in the tanks will run out.

Cisco is in Stage 3 water restrictions, which prohibits any watering that is not for essential functions. There is also a boil water notice in effect for water used for cooking.

There are two locations in the city that are handing out water to residents, according to Osborne:

- Mountain Top Church at the Myrtle Wilks Community Center

- Calvary Baptist Church on Conrad Hilton Blvd.

Some residents are still using the community center as a shelter after being evacuated from their homes near Lake Cisco.

Mandatory evacuations were enacted for people living along North Shore Dr. on Thursday. As of Friday evening, residents were still not allowed back in there homes.

City officials did not have a timeline as to when they'd be able to go back to their homes.
