The West Travis County PUA said their customers no longer have to boil their water.

AUSTIN — Six days after a mandatory boil water notice was ordered for customers of the West Travis County Public Utility Agency, the notice has been lifted, according to officials.

The West Travis County PUA said in the days after they were alerted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that they failed to meet the turbidity standards, they worked to "restore the quality of the water." Officials said they sent in lab test results to the TCEQ to inform them that the water quality meets their standards, and the boil water notice was lifted Saturday, Oct. 27.

Restrictions issued after Austin Water customers use too much water

It's day 6 of the Austin boil water notice

The PUA said while the boil water notice is over, the stage 4 emergency water conservation measures remain in place. Officials said this is due to ongoing turbidity problems at Lake Austin, which has reduced WTCPUA's water treatment capacity.

Simultaneously, the TCEQ issued a mandatory boil water notice for Austin Water customers. The city-wide boil water notice was lifted in Austin on Sunday, Oct. 28.
