Clute power lines

Power lines are seen in Clute on Thursday. Some residents in the area have gotten power back since outages began in the area on Monday, but others are still waiting to be able to heat their homes.

LAKE JACKSON — With water coursing through municipal water systems throughout the area, cities are working their way through getting the systems back to normal working conditions.

“As of this morning, we achieved the first goal of receiving water from (Brazosport Water Authority),” according to the Thursday morning update from the City of Lake Jackson. “Now, we are focusing on restoring the water storage levels and maintaining safe pressure levels, above 20 psi, so that we can begin the next step of collecting samples. It typically takes about 24 hours to receive results.”
