DAINGERFIELD, Texas (KLTV) - The City of Daingerfield is under a boil water notice due to reduced pressure in the system, which has left some without water. Schools and county offices will re-open Tuesday morning.

All Morris County offices were closed as of 9:30 a.m. Monday due to lack of water, according to a social media post from the Morris County Judge. They will re-open Tuesday at 8 a.m.

Crews were working to restore service throughout the morning, and a county post at 12:06 p.m. indicated the repairs had been completed.

All Daingerfield-Lone Star ISD schools will re-open Tuesday, a county post said. Buses will run at regular times, and all campuses will be provided with bottled water. Students may also bring their own if desired.

The boil water notice will remain in effect until a similar notice is issued to rescind it.

All customers of the City of Daingerfield Water System should boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.). Children, seniors and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

To ensure destruction of harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and making ice should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

If you have any questions concerning this matter, you may contact the City of Daingerfield at (903) 645-3906.
