BASTROP COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Aqua Water Supply Corporation has lifted a boil water notice issued Tuesday for an area in eastern Bastrop County after a water main break caused low pressure in the system.

Those who live in the portion of Zone Five between North Farm to Market Road 2104 and U.S. Highway 290 East from west of the Bastrop and Lee County line to St. Delight Road needed to boil their water before drinking it, cooking with it or using it to make ice.

A water main break around 5 a.m. Tuesday caused the pressure in Aqua Water Supply’s system to decrease, which could have let harmful microbes in the supply.

As of Thursday, Aqua Water said the water tested was free of harmful microbes.
