“Today we can report that Austin’s water system has been restored to normal operations and the boil water notice has been lifted for all our customers,” Austin Water Director Greg Meszaros said in the announcement.
According to the announcement, Austin Water customers are clear to drink and use water, but other area utility districts may still have boil-water notices in place. Utilities that purchase water wholesale from Austin Water—including Night Hawk, Travis County WCID No. 10, Windermere, Creedmoor-Maha WSC, Morningside, Rivercrest, San Leanna, Marsha WSC, Wells Branch MUD, Northtown MUD, Manor, Rollingwood and Sunset Valley—may conduct additional water quality tests before lifting their isolated boil-water notices.
Austin Water also continues to repair water main breaks and other leaks across the city of Austin.
“There is still a lot to do to repair water pipelines that were damaged by the freezing weather, but customers should only experience occasional impacts from that work," Meszaros said. "We are thankful for the community’s efforts to conserve water over this past week to help us restore our operations today.”
