Updated Dec. 11, 10 a.m.

Rollingwood officials said the boil water notice will continue today for the six streets mentioned in the original notice. Test results returned Dec. 10 showed turbidity, or cloudiness, in the water supply prompting the continued boil water notice. Further test results may be confirmed later today, officials said.

Rollingwood boil water notice issued for Hatley, Riley, Pickwick, Vale, Vance, Bettis residents

Due to a water line break, a boil water notice in effect for a portion of the city of Rollingwood since Dec. 8 will continue through Dec. 10, City Manager Charles Winfield said.

The break occurred near the intersection of Bettis and Riley streets on Dec. 8 and the boil water notice affects residents on Hatley, Riley, Pickwick, Vale, Vance and Bettis streets, he said.

Although the break has been repaired, tests of water samples to ensure that no bacteria remain are still outstanding, Winfield said. These test results should be returned to the city around noon today, he said.

A city is required to issue a boil water notice if water has been turned off for at least three hours, Winfield said.

A boil water notice means the water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes, a news release stated. In lieu of boiling, residents may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source, it stated.
