The City of Killeen has issued a boil water notice effective immediately for those living at 1902 to 2006 Wood Avenue.

A water main break has caused a drop in water pressure, and crews are repairing the break to restore service. So from this point forward, all water at these addresses should be boiled prior to consumption.

Affected properties have been notified directly. Public notice has been issued at and via news release.

Public notice will be issued when the notice is lifted.

TCEQ Required Notice:

 Due to conditions caused by water system maintenance, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Killeen, PWS 0140006, to notify all customers at the above listed properties to 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 affected customers should follow these directions.

 To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and for making ice 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, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system officials will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
