[ARCHIVED] City of Victoria issues boil-water notice

Water faucet

Due to a major water break on a 20-inch water main located at Airline Road and Ben Jordan Street, the City of Victoria is advising all residents located in the south pressure plane to boil water prior to consumption.

The south pressure plane is below the red line on the accompanying map.

Water customers should follow the below precautionary boil-water instructions.

  • Map with red line roughly east of MockingbirdChildren, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, so to ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
  • Water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.
  • This information should be shared with all other community members who may drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses).

Water has been restored to the citizens located in the south pressure plane; however, water pressure may still be low until the water break is repaired.  Citizens located in the north pressure plane were not affected by the water break and are not required to boil water.
