Public water system officials say the water is now safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
LYTLE, Texas — The City of Lytle has lifted their boil water notice, officials say.
“The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as May 23.”
The city issued the notice beginning at 12:45 a.m. Sunday. and was expected to stay in effect until Tuesday.
They had told all customers they should boil their water before using for washing hands and face, brushing teeth and drinking.
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 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. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.
In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The public water system officials will notify customers when the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly.
