UPDATE: Cottonwood Shores lifts boil water notice

The city of Cottonwood Shores lifted a boil water notice as of 1:30 p.m. February 14. It was issued February 12 due to work on a major waterline.

According to the notice lifting the boil water requirement, the city’s water utilities department “has taken the necessary actions, as required by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) guidelines, to restore adequate water pressure, confirmed disinfectant levels, and water quality after the water main break repair earlier this week.”

The city shut down the 8-inch water main for approximately six hours February 12-13 to make additional repairs to the line from when it broke in November. These fixes include installing a valve to isolate the waterline and help prevent protracted water shut-offs in the event of a break like the November incident.

Under TCEQ rules, because of the loss of water pressure, which can allow harmful bacteria and microbes to enter the system, the city was required to issue the boil water notice.

Call the city at 830-693-3830 for more information.
