City of Olton officials have confirmed a major water line break inside the city. City crews worked much of the afternoon and evening on Monday to make repairs. Due to a drop in the water pressure the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is requiring a boil water notice be issued.
City residents are being told to boil their water prior to consumption. Water should be brought to vigorous rolling boil for two minutes and allowed to cool prior to consumption. In lieu of boiling, residents may purchase bottled water or obtain water from another suitable source.
This notice is in effect until further notice according to Olton City officials.
