Call us at 817-392-4477 and let us do that for you.

And if you can, please conserve water and use for essential household needs. Consider putting off doing the laundry for now. Not only does it use a lot of water, it uses a lot of electricity.

Grand Prairie Water

Not currently under a boil water notice. There may be temporary shut offs or low water pressure in isolated areas to address main breaks and other potential issues. The city has communicated with Dallas Water Utilities (our largest water provider) and they are bringing additional resources online to ensure the demand is met to their customers.

The city does ask citizens to try to conserve water as much as possible in the event there is a catastrophic issue that limits our capacity.

The rumors of shut offs south of I-20 are not true. We are at the mercy, to some extent, of some outside agencies that we purchase water from, but we have taken extra precautions on our side of the system to prevent as much down time as possible.

We have every intention in ensuring the citizens of Grand Prairie have water and wastewater services, unless a resident’s pipes are frozen) throughout this extreme weather event.
