Whitehouse issues boil water notice after work crew hits water main
WHITEHOUSE, Texas (KLTV)
THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE: “Crews completed repairs to the damaged water main at approximately 1 a.m. We are currently flushing water lines and anticipate delivering water samples to the lab for testing today. That testing process takes approximately 24 hours before we will receive results. We will provide another update on Friday,” said the city in a Facebook post.
The City of Whitehouse announced a boil water notice Wednesday evening.
The City said that at just before 5 p.m. Wednesday, a company working to install fiber along Hwy 110N hit an 8″ water main. Crews have been on-site working to repair the main; however, to ensure the safety of workers, the City needs to reduce the pressure on the main, triggering a boil water notice.
It is anticipated that once repairs are complete and samples can be taken, it will take an additional 24 hours before the boil water notice can be lifted. We will post updates as they become available.
