A boil water notice was issued for the City of Houston's Main Water System, after the water pressure dropped below the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's required minimum of 20 PSI during a power outage at the East Water Purification Plant, which is the City's main source of water. The boil notice was issued out of an abundance of caution. Again this boil notice does NOT include Kingwood or Huffman residents or those that receive a bill from Clear Lake City Water Authority, these communities are on separate unrelated distribution systems.
As a result of the Boil Water Notice, for those in impacted areas, the public is advised:
- Do not drink the water without boiling it first.
- Bring all water to a boil for at least two minutes.
- Let it cool before using.
- Individuals without power to boil water are advised to use bottled water for consumption.
At this time all water pressure issues have been restored and the City of Houston is waiting on water test results from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality before the boil notice can be lifted.
