AUSTIN (KXAN) – The water treatment plant malfunction that led to a severe water shortage in Lago Vista on Tuesday was repaired, residents can go back to normal water usage.

The city is still under mandatory water rationing.

The malfunction at one of the city’s water plants on Tuesday severely limited the city’s treatment capability and residents were asked to immediately stop all outside irrigation, filling of pools, washing of vehicles, and refrain from any unnecessary water use until the problem has been fixed.
