The number of customers’ water taps that lost pressure or went completely dry in Odessa, Texas, after a 24-inch main broke on Monday, June 13. The water system break occurred just as the city was experiencing extremely hot and humid conditions. City officials distributed drinking water while they waited for the services to be restored. The city’s water system was back online by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15, but city officials expected the “recharging” process could take up to 12 to 14 hours.
