North Austin Water Boil Order Lifted (Update)

Update: On Thursday, Austin Water announced the water boil order is lifted for customers along Parmer Lane between Legendary Drive and Sage Grouse Drive along East McNeil Road from Parmer Lane to Howard Lane.

According to the city, all lab tests on water quality have come back normal. The break that caused the water boil order has been repaired. 

Original Post (April 2, 8:24 p.m.): Austin Water has  a water boil order in effect for customers along Parmer Lane between Legendary Drive and Sage Grouse Drive and along East McNeil Road from Parmer Lane to Howard Lane.

It's because of a break in a 24-inch water main at 5401 Parmer Lane on Tuesday.

To kill harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and for making ice should be boiled before consumption. 

Austin Water officials will notify customers when the notice is lifted and water is safe for consumption.
