A massive water leak in the Alamo city of San Antonio caused a huge disruption of city services.
The water supply in the city is normally treated by a combination of rain and other rainfall.
Water treatment equipment is also installed throughout the city.
The Alamo City Water District said the leak damaged hundreds of millions of gallons of water, which affected people’s ability to do their jobs.
Alamo officials have not yet determined how much the water cost.
They have offered free water to residents and have started to release information on the water rate.
They said that if customers have not already paid for the cost of the water, they can pay through the end of the month.
Alamios officials have been working with the city of Austin to help customers and will continue to do so until the water system is repaired.
A report released Wednesday from the Austin Water Bureau estimated that the cost for repairs at the city’s water treatment facility, which is the only one in the country to use natural gas, is $1.8 billion.
It said the cost to repair the citys entire water system will be $3.6 billion.
Alamos city has been operating with water from Lake Austin since it was founded in 1854.
