Eastern Hays County neighborhoods’ boil water notice cancelled


AUSTIN (KXAN) — On Friday, the boil water notice that was issued Thursday for some residents in eastern Hays County was cancelled, according to a Monarch Utilities release.

In the release, Monarch states:

“On August 1, 2019, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required Plum Creek water system to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform our customers that due to conditions which have occurred recently in the water system, all customers should boil their water prior to consumption. Our system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling.”

The notice was issued for some residents in eastern Hays County on Thursday after a contractor doing work in the area ruptured a water main line, according to a release from Monarch Utilities.

Homes in the Rolling Hills and Green Pastures subdivisions east of Interstate 35 that are part of the Plum Creek water system were the only ones affected by the notice.
