Parts of San Antonio can now drink and use their tap water without boiling, San Antonio Water System announced Saturday.
After completing the required water quality sampling, and in consultation with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) SAWS scientists determined that certain areas of San Antonio will be released from the Boil Water Notice immediately. SAWS is continuing to test water samples from other areas to release additional areas in the coming days.
An interactive map of the areas released from the boil water notice is available with address look-up capability. Areas shown with a green color are released from the boil water notice.
The TCEQ said today that at this point over 1,300 water utilities across the state are still in some form of Boil Water Notice requirement. Only 64 have lifted their boil water notices.
While the notice has been lifted in these areas, SAWS still recommends that customers flush household pipes, ice makers and water fountains at least once prior to using for drinking or cooking.
