Williamson County Issues Disaster Declaration

Williamson County Judge Dan A. Gattis issued a proclamation declaring a state of disaster for Williamson County on October 22, 2018, resulting from continued severe weather, flash flooding, and potable water outages that occurred on or about October 15, 2018. The state of disaster shall continue for not more than seven days unless continued or renewed by the Commissioners Court.

Williamson County will activate its Emergency Operations Center at 10 a.m. today and will remain active until the City of Austin's boil water notice is lifted. The County will work with the City of Austin to set up a point of distribution for water for the approximately 80,000 people in Williamson County currently under the boil water notice. A copy of the map of the area under the boil water notice can be found here. The Office of Emergency Management also will work with the Round Rock ISD and Leander ISD to assist them in obtaining water for their schools under the boil water notice. In the two school districts, 25 schools are affected.
