The Village of San Leanna is the latest Central Texas community to issue a boil-water notice due to ongoing cold temperatures.

According to a notice by San Leanna City Administrator Rebecca Howe, the notice was issued due to a drop in water pressure in the village’s public water system. The village—which is located in Southern Travis County along FM 1626, just south of the city of Austin—will issue a new notice to residents once conditions return to normal.


Under a mandatory boil-water notice, residents should bring all water to a rolling boil for two minutes and cool before using it to cook, drink, wash hands or brush teeth, according to San Leanna’s notice.

As of 6:30 p.m. Feb. 18, Austin Water customers continue to be under a boil-water notice. With thousands of customers experiencing low or no water flow at their homes, Austin Water Director Greg Meszaros said his department’s priority is restoring water to hospitals and medical centers. He warned Austinites to prepare for an extended period of water outages and boil-water notices.
