The City of Killeen on Monday continued to operate water filling stations to help residents currently without service.

The City planned to distribute MREs and bottled water at the Killeen Community Center, 2201 East Veterans Memorial Boulevard, beginning at 10 AM until supplies are gone. The announcement was made shortly before 10 AM, and officials said supplies will be limited to one case each per car. These were expected to go fast.

Meanwhile, filling stations will operate until 6PM at the following locations:

 

Residents are asked to bring their own containers to be filled, and water will need to be boiled prior to consumption.

Killeen remains under Stage 5 water restrictions, and City officials say private property water leaks continue to contribute to draining the supply of available water. They ask that residents check their properties for leaks as soon as possible and report them by calling (254) 501-6320 or emailing wsoperations@killeentexas.gov. They'd also like residents to report any leaks they see in their neighborhoods.

"Because of the cooperation of the public, we have seen significant progress in containing leaks," City of Killeen Executive Director of Communications Hilary J. Shine said Sunday. "Water levels across the city are beginning to rise, which will create both supply and pressure. The vigilance of the public and adherence to water restrictions are speeding the restoration of services to all residents. Thank you for your cooperation and patience."
