The city of Cleburne is issuing a precautionary water boil notice for water customers in the area of northwest portions of the city as shown in the map due to the recent loss in water pressure caused by a leak in the distribution system.
Crews were able to address the leak west of the tollway and are in the process of restoring water pressure levels this morning. As a precaution, the city is asking the affected water customers to boil tap water for consumption until the notice is lifted.
To ensure destruction of any potential harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making 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. Customers can also use bottled water.
This is a precautionary measure as the city has not found any harmful elements in the water system. A formal Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will be posted later but the city of Cleburne wants to ensure our customers received the notice as early as possible. The city will notify customers when it is no longer necessary to boil water. Updates will be posted on Cleburne.net and the city's social media pages.
