Leander boil water notice canceled; residents asked to flush pipes

0

The boil water notice for Leander High School and surrounding neighborhoods has been lifted, according to the city of Leander website.

The notice was lifted at 11:20 a.m. Aug. 22 and was in response to a break in a water line the day before. The line was repaired in hours.

“Results from the bacteriological samples submitted for testing on Aug. 21 showed no evidence of total coliform or E. coli bacteria contamination in the city’s public water system,” according to the city’s statement.

During the break and subsequent boil water notice, Leander ISD officials said food and water service to students and staff was not affected.

However, health officials advise that residents and businesses in the affected area:

– Run all cold water faucets and water coolers with water lines for at least five minutes
– Discard three trays of ice from automatic ice makers
– Change all water filters.
