Overton issues boil water notice after water main breaks

Posted: Updated:

Overton has issued a boil water notice after a water main burst this morning. 

The burst pipe has been patched and water will be turned on slowly. 

Students at Overton ISD were dismissed at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday after the burst pipe left the school without water.

According to Overton ISD superintendent Alan Umholtz, buses began running at 11:00 a.m. and parents were told to pick up their children at any time.

The school has bottled water and porta-potties located around campus. Teachers have anti-bacterial hand sanitizer in every classroom.

This is the first time the school district has experienced this problem this year. However, it happened three times last year.
