City’s Water Supply is Plentiful; So are Groceries and Supplies


During these challenging times, you can take confidence in the City of Mount Pleasant’s water supply and the nation’s supply chain.

“Between the City’s I-30 Water Treatment facility and the Lake Bob Sandlin Water Treatment facility, the City of Mount Pleasant has the capacity to pump 17 million gallons of treated water a day,” said Fire Chief Larry McRae, who is the Titus County Emergency Management Coordinator.

Currently, residents and businesses are using 7 to 8 ½ million gallons a day of that capacity. “That leaves nearly 9 million gallons in reserve daily,” he explained.

Chief McRae also encourages residents not to “hoard buy”.


“You are doing more harm than good,” he said. “Grocers say consumer overstocking – not a disrupted supply chain — is the main reason their store shelves are empty of many supplies and food items, especially hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, and plastic gloves.”

El suministro de agua de la ciudad es abundante; También lo son los comestibles y los suministros


Durante estos tiempos difíciles, puede confiar en el suministro de agua de la ciudad de Mount Pleasant y en la cadena de suministro de la nación.

"Entre las instalaciónes de tratamiento de agua I-30 de la ciudad y la planta de tratamiento de agua del lago Bob Sandlin, la ciudad de Mount Pleasant tiene la capacidad de bombear 17 millones de galones de agua tratada al día", dijo el jefe de bomberos Larry McRae, quien es el Coordinador de emergencias en el condado de Titus.

Actualmente, los residentes y las empresas están usando de 7 a 8 1/2 millones de galones de agua al día de esa capacidad. "Eso deja casi 9 millones de galones en reserva diariamente", explicó.

El jefe McRae también alienta a los residentes a no "comprar acaparar".


"Estás haciendo más daño que bien", dijo. "Las tiendas de abarrotes dicen que el exceso de existencias de los consumidores, y una cadena de suministro interrumpida, es la razón principal por la que los estantes de sus tiendas están vacíos de muchos suministros y alimentos, especialmente desinfectantes de manos, toallitas desinfectantes, papel higiénico y guantes de plástico".
