BELTON, TX — The boil water notice issued on August 22 for some Dog Ridge Water Supply customers has been lifted.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issued a boil water notice for parts of Belton after a water main break.

According to Dog Ridge Water Supply Corporation, on August 22, the corporation experienced a water main break in the area of Airdale Road.

The TCEQ has required customers north of Highway 190 to boil their water prior to consumption.

The notice does not include George Wilson Road and customers west of George Wilson Road.

Water used for drinking, cooking and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use in order to ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes. TCEQ says the water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and continue boiling for two minutes.

Customers who do not wish to boil their water can also use bottled water.

Customers with questions concerning this matter can contact the DRWS office at (254) 939-6533, or Lafonda Wilsey at (254) 721-0401.
