Wood Village lifts boil water notice

The City of Wood Village lifted a boil water notice this morning after test results revealed no contamination in the water.

Officials have asked customers in the affected area to flush the water taps for two minutes before use.

The boil water notice ended at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30, a day after the city alerted the public Monday morning.

Officials said the city was performing maintenance on their reservoirs when the well supplying water to that area of the city shut down for about 90 minutes. The well came back online, but the water pressure had dropped below 20 PSI or pounds per square inch.

State law requires a boil water order to be issued.

Residents were asked not to drink tap water without boiling it for at least one minute.
