LIST | Water, food distribution locations across Central Texas

For those in desperate need of water and food, these locations are giving these resources away for free.

TEMPLE, Texas — There are residents who remain without water days after Winter Storm Uri passed through Central Texas.

In some places, pipes burst and leaked, causing water to either be shut off for repairs, or caused these areas to go under a boil water notice.

Below is a list of locations in different Central Texas cities and counties where water is being distributed for those in desperate need.

More locations are expected to be added to this list in the coming days. Stay with 6 News as this story develops.


Potable water is available at these three places:

  • 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)  

Bring your own container and your driver's license or city utility bill to show you are a Belton water customer.


For residents still without water, she said H-E-B will have secured non-potable water that can be used to flush toilets. These tanks will be behind City Hall in the overflow parking lot.

The City of Marlin has also been distributing bottled water this week with varying locations
