Boil Water notices canceled


The boil water notice for the city of Mexia has been canceled.

A boil water notice issued Monday was canceled Tuesday after tests showed the water supply to be safe.
The city of Mexia, Shiloh Water Supply Corp. and 84 West Water Corp. on Monday morning issued boil water notices for all residents.
Test results received from Austin Tuesday afternoon showed the water supply is safe and free of contamination.
The city of Mexia canceled the boil water notice as of 3:55 p.m. Tuesday. Shiloh Water Supply Corp., which buys its water directly from the city of Mexia, followed suit Wednesday morning, as did 84 West Water Corp.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required all three agencies to issue the notice after low water system pressure occurred.
Water to all three initially comes from Bistone Municipal Water Supply District.
The order meant residents needed boil water before consuming it, or buy bottled water.
The last time such an order was made for the city of Mexia was in November 2012, and that order was lifted within 24 hours.
