Pflugerville Lifts Boil Water Notice (Update)


Update: The City of Pflugerville says “The boil water notice is now lifted. Chlorine levels are now at required levels and water is safe to drink.” You can read more here.

Original post (Nov. 20, 7:02 a.m.): The City of Pflugerville is telling people in several subdivisions to boil their water until further notice. The city says a routine check of  the water revealed the chlorine level is too low.

People who live in Pflugerville Heights, Spring Trails, Springbrook and Enclave should boil tap water for at least two minutes before drinking, cooking and making ice.

The city says there's a chlorine leak in a well operated by Manville Water Supply Corporation. City officials have notified the company of the problem but it's not clear when it will be fixed.

When the results of a bacteriological test indicate the water is safe to drink, the city will issue notices on the city's website, through social media and on signs posted at the entrances of the subdivisions affected.
