Boil water notice remains in effect for Dog Ridge Water Supply customers after an outage that left customers without water for several days last week.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said a Dog Ridge representative indicated some of the water samples from the system the corporation collected Monday tested positive for coliform bacteria. The water supplier will take repeat samples that will have results available on Thursday or Friday. 

"The boil water notice will remain in effect until sample results are absent coliform organism," according to a statement of TCEQ.
