Galveston issues water restrictions

GALVESTON, TX City leaders are asking residents to stop watering lawns and plants, washing vehicles or boats and refilling swimming pools. They say that will allow additional water to be available to League City, which is in the middle of a minor water emergency as crews repair a leaking water transmission line.

Galveston was in a similar situation over the Easter weekend. At that time, League City came to the rescue and Galveston leaders say they want to return the favor.
