The city has canceled its boil water notice as of 11:45 a.m. Feb. 23. Leander remains under Stage 4 water restrictions.
Posted: Feb. 16
A boil water notice was issued for all Leander customers Feb. 16 "due to extremely cold temperatures and ongoing power outages to critical city infrastructure," according to the city.
The city said some customers may have reduced or lost water service; a timeline for restoration is unknown.
This is required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, which states: "To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to consumption. 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 water system officials will notify you.”
Additional guidelines are provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Boil water notices are also in effect for Georgetown water customers in Florence and Liberty Hill.
