Boil water notice lifted for Winona


Winona is no longer under a boil water notice.

According to the city, the chlorine pump at the Well 5 location failed, and had to be replaced. The boil water noticed was required until the Texas Commission on Environmental Control was able to test the water.

After the test, the water was deemed to be safe.

"Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling," said Bryan Richards, the city administrator.
