Boil Water Notice Issued for Rogers After Water Main Break

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- Residents of Rogers are being told to boil all their water before using it until further notice.

A water main broke on South FM 2184 outside the city, which caused the pressure to drop through the system. The line has since been fixed, but the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires tests before the boil order can be lifted.

Rogers city administrator Ann McCord said they don't expect the tests to come back until probably Tuesday.

Until then, people in Rogers are warned to bring all water to a "vigorous, rolling boil" for two full minutes before using it for cooking, drinking, and making ice.

The city will notify customers when it is safe to use the water without boiling.

If you have questions, here are some numbers you can you can call:

The City of Rogers Water Department: (254) 721-0693
H20 Utilities, Tim Pitts: (254) 534-1597
Rogers City Hall: (254) 642-3312
