A precautionary water boil notice has been issued for water customers in northwest portions of the City of Cleburne, TX, earlier this morning (Friday, August 27).
The notice was issued as a result of a leak west of the tollway, which caused a loss of pressure in the distribution system.
The affected areas are shown in a map posted to the City of Cleburne Facebook page, and can be viewed below:
In an initial Facebook post, City officials said that crews had identified the leak and were in the process of restoring water pressure levels. In the meantime, customers were asked to boil their tap water for consumption as a precautionary measure.
Officials said that no harmful elements were found in the water system, but bacteriological samples were being taken to rule out the potential for contamination.
In a further update, officials reminded customers to continue to boil their water, even though some would now notice that their water service was returning to normal levels.
There is now an interactive map you can view if you need to check whether your home is in the affected area under the boil water advisory.
Customers will be informed when the boil water notice is rescinded.
