MARSHALL, Texas (KLTV) - On Thursday, April 15, 2021, the City of Marshall Public Works crews responded to a water line break due to a contractor hitting our 10″ water main located on the railroad tracks South of Houston Street and Ward Street.

The Public Works Department had to replace a 10-foot section of this water main, which directly affected the residents located on Charlotte Street and Fair Street.

The City of Marshall expects to take water samples on Monday, April 19, weather permitting, to be tested.

Citizens are advised to proceed with a BOIL WATER NOTICE until testing is complete and returned as safe for human consumption on Charlotte Street and Fair Street. Once the boil water notice is no longer needed, the City of Marshall will issue a statement.
