The city of Magnolia's water quality is fit for consumption, after the city's boil water notice was lifted at 4 p.m. Feb. 25, according to the city's website.
A boil notice was issued to the city Feb. 16 after freezing temperatures and electricity outages caused the city's water plants to suffer a loss of water pressure. Residents were required to boil water from the public water system prior to being used for consumption.
With the notice lifted, the city recommends residents to flush household pipes, ice makers and water fountains to ensure contaminated water does not remain in household water systems. For more information on how to do this, visit the city's website here. The city's public works department can be contacted at 281-356-2266.
