Storm Response Update
February 22, 2021


Water (Stage 5 Drought Conditions)

  • Water conservation efforts over the past 24 hours made a significant difference and water pressure is up throughout the City.
  • Stage 5 Conditions will remain in place for at least the next 24 hours to verify that the water system is stable.
  • Potable water is currently available at three places in Belton. Please bring your own container. Must be a Belton water customer (confirmed with a driver’s license or city utility bill).
    • Public Works yard, 1502 Holland Rd. (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
    • Fire Station No. 2, 420 Sparta Rd. (24 hours, self service)
    • Harris Community Center, 401 N. Alexander St. (24 hours, self service)
  • If you have no water, it is likely because a leak was detected on your property. Please make repairs before requesting to have the water turned back on.
  • City of Belton crews continue to assist residents to turn on and off water. If you have water related questions, please call 254-933-5823.

  • Boil water notice is limited to Old Golf Course Road and Auction Barn Road.
  • Permit fees for emergency repairs are waived through March 5.

Trash Service

  • Trash and recycling services are on normal schedule this week.
  • Curbside bulk collection is Wednesday for customers with Friday trash collection.
