Boil water notice lifted for Fayette County residents

Aqua Water Supply said repairs caused low pressure, which may have allowed harmful microbes into the water system.

FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas — A boil water notice for Fayette County residents using Vista Ranch Water System has been lifted after the utility dealt with low pressure due to system repairs.

According to Aqua Water Supply, the affected area included Country Way Road, Vista Ranch Road, Barton Creek Road and Red Hollow Lane.

Officials also called for water conservation until the boil water notice was lifted.

They said the loss of pressure happened around 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday and may have allowed harmful microbes into the water system.

“Once repairs are complete and the system is restored to normal operating conditions, the system will then be flushed with chlorinated water,” a statement from Aqua Water Supply said. “The boil water notice will only be lifted after our tests confirm the water is safe to drink. As soon as Aqua receives sample results, Aqua will notify customers through telephone messages, local media and cable channel 1.”

Anyone with any questions is asked to contact Dave McMurry at 512-303-3943.
