TYLER, Texas (News Release) - The City of Tyler’s boil water notice remains in effect. The City projects that water storage tanks will fill today and samples will be taken on Sunday. Labs will take a minimum of 18 hours to review the samples. Our current projection for lifting the boil notice is between 10 a.m. on Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon. Once lifted, residents will be asked to flush their lines for 15 minutes. The City will send out a notification when the boil notice is lifted.

Customers should expect low or inconsistent water pressure as the system stabilizes. Customers experiencing water loss that is not due to freezing pipes should contact the Water Service Center at (903) 531-1285 during regular business hours and the Golden Road Water Treatment Plant at (903) 597-6541 after-hours and on weekends.

For a list of main repairs happening this weekend, please see our Saturday, 10 a.m. update.

The Service center will be partnering with private contractors to assist with repairs today and through the coming week.

Roadways

Well-traveled roads are beginning to thaw and create slush. Less traveled streets and shaded areas can still be dangerous. Residents are asked to drive with caution, especially in neighborhoods which make take longer to clear.

All three of our sanding trucks are in operation. We have a crew sanding trouble spots on major bridges, overpasses and around hospitals. We do not anticipate a freeze tonight but will have a crew on standby should they be needed. Stockpiles of crushed aggregate and de-icer remain sufficient.

Transit

Transit for grocery pickup will be available on Saturday and Sunday from around 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Cut-off for reservations is 2 p.m. daily. To request a ride, call NDMJ, LLC. at (903) 592-3232 or Tyler Transit (903) 520-8281 and leave a message with your home address, pick-up location, phone number and name.

Warming Centers

All temporary warming centers have demobilized. Both The Salvation Army in Tyler and Hiway 80 Rescue Mission operate emergency shelters open 24/7.
