If You Live on Sparrow Road in Killeen, Boil Your Water Tuesday
If you live between 2227 and 2300 Sparrow Road in Killeen, you'll be under a boil water notice starting at 8 AM Tuesday.
In a news release, City of Killeen Executive Director of Communications Hilary J. Shine reported that a contractor will be installing a new valve on an existing water main and must interrupt water services to complete the project.
Water service is expected to be impacted from 8 AM to Noon. Once service is restored, all water must be boiled prior to consumption.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality recommends doing the following:
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and for making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system officials will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
If you know someone who lives along Sparrow Road, please share this information with them in case they haven't been notified. We don't want anyone getting sick.
