The City of Temple issued a boil water notice for some residents Sunday afternoon.
The following areas are affected by the notice effective immediately:
- Area north of Winchester Drive to Longhorn Trail
- Area west of Mariam Drive to Arthur Road
- Area south of Marlandwood Drive and Raleigh Drive
- Area east of Calle Secoya
The city said residents should boil water used for drinking, cooking and ice-making prior to consumption to ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and microbes.
