UPDATE: Reilly Road Water Applications Ready

Applications are ready for anyone wanting to buy water from the Reilly Road Water Fill Station.

The station should be used by rural Wichita County residents who don't have access to residential water service.

Eligible residents can buy up to 7,500 gallons of potable water per month.

Rules about water use, eligibility and the application process can be found here.

The application can be found here.

The Rielly Road Water situation has been a top agenda item for the City of Wichita Falls. At one point, the city threatened to shut it down completely to rural residents. The Mayor of Wichita Falls told Newschannel 6 people were taking water, then re-selling it.

The possible shutdown angered residents who rely on the fill station.

Because of this, the city did set up a new automated system to cut down on abuse.
