Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell said the county is working to help Taylor with water, but it will be a few days before help arrives.

“The water supply chain is just like our grocery supply chain, it’s very limited,” Gravell said in a virtual meeting Friday afternoon.

He knows there is electricity in Taylor and to the Brazos River Authority water facility, which provides water for Taylor.

“It’s going to be days before our water systems are back up and running,” he said. “Each city and each municipality are responsible for their own.”

Gravell said the county is working to get water to cities in need. He said the county ordered 10 truckloads of water, but the earliest delivery day is Tuesday.

“We have been asking for and ordering water and using it quite a bit in the last few days,” Gravell said.

He did encourage citizens to use what is currently available to them.

“In Taylor, there is running water, and it’s limited and it’s low pressure,” he said. “I would encourage you to boil your water and consume your water. It is what we have at this time.”
