The city of Kyle said water pressure in its water system was rising and beginning to stabilize, but residents should still limit water use to emergencies only, which does not include dripping faucets or flushing toilets.

A boil-water notice is still in effect as required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality because water pressure in the system dropped below 20 pounds per square inch after repetitive and prolonged power outages at multiple water production sites, the city said.

After the city's water system stabilizes, it will require roughly 48 hours for state-mandated testing before the boil-water notice can be lifted. More information is available online.

The city said there is no current evidence of contamination in Kyle's water system, but heating water to a rolling boil for at least two minutes is still recommended before consumption. Uses requiring water to be boiled include drinking, washing hands and faces, brushing teeth, etc.

Bottled water and other suitable sources remain as an alternative to boiling water.

The following Kyle area utilities are also under a boil-water notice:

Power outages

Because the Electric Reliability Council of Texas has ended rotating power outages, any remaining outages are not part of a scheduled interruption and should be reported to the utility.

Some 1,600 Pedernales Electric Cooperative customers in Hays County are still without power, according to Outages can be reported online or by calling 888-883-3379.
