Houston issues boil water notice following power outages to water treatment plants
A boil water notice was issued in Houston, Texas, on Sunday after multiple water treatment plants lost power.
Houston Public Works wrote in a press release that the water pressure had dropped "below the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s required minimum of 20 PSI during a power outage at the East Water Purification Plant."
The agency advised the public to avoid drinking water without boiling it first, to bring all water to a boil for at least two minutes before using it and to let the water cool before using it. People without power are encouraged to use bottled water.
