[ARCHIVED] Statement Regarding Water and Trash Services

Information regarding water main breaks and trash service.

We’ve had a lot of questions about water and trash pickup. Below are two statements regarding those issues. 


The City of Odessa has received a number of calls related to incorrect information regarding a major water main break within the City’s water system.  Currently, the City has not experienced any major water line breaks that would impact the continuous flow of water to our Citizens.

 There have been a few minor line breaks throughout the system, however, as the weather warms up, we anticipate additional water line breaks as a result of expansion and contraction in the lines. City Personnel is ready to address any potential breaks that may occur as expeditiously as possible to minimize any impact to our residents.

 We are asking residents to consider some best practices during this time to prevent freezing pipes such as letting faucets drip, wrapping pipes and opening cabinet doors. 

 We appreciate your help during this time, thank you!


Solid waste:

As the City and entire State continue to cope with this unprecedented cold weather and icy road conditions, for safety reasons, the City of Odessa will tentatively resume residential Solid Waste pick up services on Friday, February 19, 2021. A majority of the residential roads and alleys are not in a condition for our large Sanitation trucks to safely pass through. Service will only resume if the City determines that alleys and residential streets are deemed safe for trash service. 

 Roll-out customers should place their carts on the curb and our drivers will pick them up once it is safe to do so.

 The Household Hazardous Waste Facility will be closed until Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
