Areas along State Highway 34 and FM 68 could experience variable water pressure until mid-February.

Homes and businesses near the Hunt County – Fannin County line could experience low water pressure for about a month, starting on Wed. Jan. 16.

The North Hunt Special Utilities District is going to be working on the elevated water tank on Farm-to-Market Road 68 in southeastern Fannin County. The interior and exterior of the tank are going to be sandblasted and repainted.

The job is expected to take about a month, starting on Jan. 16 and continuing until mid February. As a result, water pressure is expected to be inconsistent and could be much lower than usual at times.

The North Hunt S-U-D says the areas affected will be along State Highway 34 from Wolfe City to Ladonia, any county roads near that stretch of Highway 34, and FM 68 in that same area.
