Llano residents asked to boil water after break in line

FROM STAFF REPORTS

LLANO — City crews responded to a report of a broken 6-inch water line about 2 a.m. May 28, but officials have asked residents south of the Llano River to boil water until further notice.

A city news release sent out about 8 a.m. stated the crew was working on repairs, but because of low water pressure, officials issued a boil water notice.

The city used its Emergency Notification System about 6 a.m. May 28 to notify residents.

The city will notify residents as soon as test results come back confirming water is safe to use without boiling. Officials said those results likely would be back no sooner than noon May 30.
