Alamo Water Supply Repairing Leaking Tower on Sioux Road
ALAMO - A local water supply company is working to repair a leaking water tower in Alamo.
A CHANNEL 5 NEWS crew came across the leak inadvertently at a North Alamo Water Supply Corporation Tower on Sioux Road.
We saw water spewing out from a pipe that connects directly to the tower. The water was enough to fill up a ditch.
Our crews went back to the site on Thursday and found the water had not stopped flowing out of the tower.
Maria Garcia is a customer of North Alamo Water Supply. She said water pressure in her home is doing just fine. A few other customers we spoke to off-camera said the same thing.
North Alamo Water Supply Corporation operations manager Robert Rodriguez said crews were unaware of the leak. He said it was a mechanical issue with the tower’s altitude valve.
Rodriguez said there’s no way to tell how much water was lost. He said a system operator went out to stop the overflow.
North Alamo Water Supply Corporation encourages the community to call them if they see anything similar. Their phone number is 956-383-1618.
