Boil Water Notice lifted for all Bell County cities

Due to pressure being lost throughout the entire system, a boil water notice was required in accordance with TCEQ regulations for at least 36 hours.

BELTON, Texas — The water boil notice issued for some Bell County cities over the weekend was lifted Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release. 

The notice was lifted for these areas: Copperas Cove, Belton, Killeen, Nolanville, Harker Heights and Fort Hood.

The notice came after a water main break issue on Saturday, which caused a loss in water pressure. Officials said Saturday's issue was nearly restored when a outage happened and due to pressure being lost throughout the entire system, a boil water notice was required in accordance with TCEQ regulations for at least 36 hours.

Residents were advised to boil water to help ensure residents boil their water, whether for drinking, cooking or making ice, prior to using it in order to help kill harmful bacteria and other microbes.

Water quality samples were taken with results showing that no contamination occurred.
