UPDATE: According to the Hillsboro Department of Public Safety, the boil water notice has been lifted as of Sunday afternoon.

Below is the original text from this story:

Due to reduced distribution system pressure caused by a water line break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Hillsboro public water system to notify all customers to boil their water.

Children, seniors and those with weak immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

Water for drinking, cooking and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to drinking. The water should be brought to a rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In the meantime, people can buy bottled water or get it from another source.

Officials of the public water system notify customers when the water is safe.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Walter Garcia at 254-266-5441.
