At 9 a.m. this morning Richardson water utility workers shut off a 20-inch water main located near Renner Road and Foxboro Drive to implement emergency repairs to a water valve that failed and began leaking. The outage has impacted approximately 250 water customers in the area, which is mostly made up of single-family homes and some businesses.
The repairs are estimated to take approximately 6 to 8 hours, which would leave customers without water service until late this afternoon. Two eastbound lanes of Renner Road between Plano Road to Foxboro Drive will also be closed as repairs proceed.
Richardson water customer service workers are going door-to-door in the impacted neighborhood to leave outage notices on customer’s doors.
