ORIGINAL POST

The city of Pflugerville announced Feb. 23 that it has ended the boil water notice for city water customers. The notice was issued Feb. 15 as a result of a power outage at the city's water treatment plant.

Portions of Pflugerville still remain under a boil water notice, outlined in red here. The areas still requiring boiling prior to water consumption include:

  • Lakeside Water Control and Improvement Districts No. 2A, 2B, 2C and 2D (including Blackhawk and the Reserve at Westcreek communities)

  • Kelly Lane WCID No. 1 and 2 (Avalon region)


An update by the city of Pflugerville at 6 p.m. on Feb. 23 stated that the boil water notice has been lifted for the Lakeside Municipal Utility District No. 3 (Commons at Rowe Lane neighborhood) and Lakeside WCID No. 1.

For residents no longer under a boil water notice, water customers may use water as normal. Recommended cleaning procedures for potentially compromised water sources include:

  • flushing household pipes, faucets;

  • dumping existing ice and flushing water feed lines; flush lines by making and disposing three batches of ice;

  • hot water heaters, water coolers, inline filters: run enough water to replace "at least one full volume of all lines and tanks," per the release;

  • water softeners: run a regeneration cycle; and

  • reverse osmosis units: replace pre-filters.
