Pacific Partnership is in its 10th iteration and is the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. While training for crisis conditions, Pacific Partnership missions to date have provided real world medical care to approximately 270,000 patients and veterinary services to more than 38,000 animals. Critical infrastructure development has been supported in host nations during more than 180 engineering projects. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Peter Reft/RELEASED)

The 102-inch in diameter line scheduled for repair is reportedly the main source of water to the City of Houston East Water Purification Plant on Federal Road. The main is operated by the Coastal Water Authority.

If you live in the affected area and want to report any concerns, officials urge you to contact 311.
