UPDATE: Cottonwood Shores lifts boil water notice

The city of Cottonwood Shores has lifted a boil water notice as of November 21.

The city issued the boil water notice November 20 after crews shut down the water system to make repairs to an 8-inch water line. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the city to issue the notice due to low or no water pressure.

On November 21, the city met the TCEQ requirements in order to lift the boil water notice.

Earlier in the week, an 8-inch water line broke after the ground shifted. City officials believe the ground shifted due to the period of hot, dry weather followed by a snap of cold, wet weather. The repairs required crews to shut down the entire city water system for several hours on November 20.
