The City of Sulphur Springs is offering a reward of 1 million gallons of water reward for the first person who calls in any major water break in the next 24 hours, according to City Manager Marc Maxwell.

“We define a major water break as any break on a city water main not a service lateral unless that lateral is four inches or greater in diameter. Any person who spots a leak should call 903-885-7602 and press 1 for dispatch. This means that a person’s or business’ water will be free until they reach the 1 million gallon mark,” Maxwell said.

While the offer does not apply to sanitation fees, it may also be applied it sewer fees on a gallon for gallon basis if the customer wishes up to a total of 1 million gallons for water and sewer combined.

“This reward applies to each and every major water break that occurs in the City of Sulphur Springs City limits during the next 24 hours beginning tonight, Feb 20, at 7:08 pm. It only applies to the first person who calls in each break,” Maxwell stated.

The reward is offered in an effort to head off water breaks and make sure the city continues to have a sufficient supply of water. The water supply in the city’s water towers is low.

“We are trying to head off water breaks before they become a problem. Between our water breaks and water supply corporations water breaks, we are losing water faster than we can pump it into the towers. That is not a sustainable situation. We are investigating use of water supply corporations,” Maxwell said. “We have water and are trying to keep it that way.”

The first confirmed report was on Church Street at California Street. The offer remains good to the first person to report any other major water break discovered in Sulphur Springs through 7:08 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21.
