LAKE JACKSON — Whether southern Brazoria County turned a corner in the weather-related utility crisis this week is yet to be certain, but following the shutdown of service to communities throughout the area by the Brazosport Water Authority, the water treatment plant went back online several hours later, with assurances service will be normalized before Thursday.

CenterPoint restored power to the Lake Jackson water plant shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday, allowing the system to get back underway to the municipalities and agencies that are part of the Brazosport Water Authority, which include Lake Jackson, Freeport, Angleton, Brazoria, Richwood, Oyster Creek, Clute, Rosenberg, Dow Chemical, and the Clemens and Wayne Scott state prison units.
