KILLEEN, TX — The City of Killeen issued a boil water notice for some residents due to an interruption in service for valve replacement.

Residents living in properties locted at 2301 to 2410 Flintstone Circle should boil their water prior to consumption effective immediately, Aug. 28.

The city said an emergency valve replacement is underway. Water services will not be available while the work is completed, according to city officials.

Residents at these addresses should boil all water prior to consumption until water sampling results confirm that no contamination occurred. The city will issue a public notice when the boil order is lifted.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and for making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system officials will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
