2-24-21 Boil Water Order Lifted for Certain Killeen Schools
All other properties must continue to boil water for consumption.
A boil water notice was issued February 17 for all properties in Killeen. The boil order is lifted effective immediately for the following schools:
• High Schools: Ellison, Killeen and Shoemaker
• Middle Schools: Liberty Hill, Patterson and Rancier
• Elementary Schools: Brookhaven, Cedar Valley, Fowler, Hay Branch, Iduma, Peebles, Pershing Park, Sugar Loaf and Trimmier
• Other Campuses: Career Center and Pathways
All other properties must continue to boil until further notice. Water quality samples have been submitted for these properties, and testing should be completed overnight. Results will be announced as soon as received.
Extreme weather conditions caused a loss of water pressure and service throughout the city, which necessitated the city-wide boil order.
TCEQ Required Notice:
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Killeen public water system to issue a Boil Water Notice effective February 17, 2021 to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
The City of Killeen public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water in the above listed area no longer requires boiling at the listed schools prior to use as of February 24, 2021 at 7 p.m.
