The following areas no longer need to boil their water:
- Leander Road and FM2243 area
- D.B. Wood Road and Hwy. 29 area
- Areas west of Georgetown, including Santa Rita, Northlake and Andice
“The quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes has undergone laboratory tests, and results provided to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that indicate the water no longer requires boiling prior to use,” officials said.
At its peak, about 19,500 water customers were under the boil-water notice beginning on Feb. 16.
While the notice has been lifted, the city still asks residents to continue to limit water use as much as possible as the system is still recovering.
Customers in these areas might experience sedimentation and/or discoloration resulting from the loss of pressure in the water system. To remove sedimentation and/or discoloration, people should flush household pipes, ice makers and water fountains prior to using them for drinking or cooking, it said.
About 2,190 customers remain under the boil-water notice in these areas:
- The Westinghouse area bound by I-35 to FM1460
- Liberty Hill
The city will continue to provide two water-filling station from noon-5 p.m. Feb. 21 in Georgetown and Florence.
Samples from the Westinghouse and Liberty Hill areas were sent for testing on Feb. 20. The city expects to submit samples from Florence on Feb. 21. Test results take one to two days, it said.
As the water system works to refill the water towers, it does take time for the system to fully respond, and continued fluctuations in water pressure are to be expected, it said.
"City crews worked around the clock to address the issues caused by the winter storm, including repairing lift and pump stations, as well as burst water mains,” officials said.
