Work on the water well at the industrial park has finished and water lines have been pressure tests, she added. Once TCEQ obtains water samples and determines they pass testing, the well will go online.

The city is also waiting for insurance adjusters to assess damages to city hall related to roof damage and a water leak from Hurricane Harvey.
