MARBLE FALLS, Texas (KXAN) — Marble Falls public water customers need to boil water before drinking, brushing teeth or washing their hands and faces.

The boil water notice went out Wednesday at 10 a.m., a day after Kingsland residents were also told to boil water following widespread flooding along the Colorado and Llano rivers.

The quality of Marble Falls’ drinking water has been compromised due to the flooding, the city said.

“Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions,” city officials said in a statement.

The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. Residents can also buy bottled water instead of using boiled water.

The city will send out a notice when the water is safe to drink again.
