Boil water notice to continue through weekend

Boil water notice to continue through weekend

PADUCAH, TX (KFDA) - A boil water notice issued earlier this week for Paducah residents will continue through the weekend, according to city officials Friday.

A water main that broke on Monday prompted the initial notice. Officials say repairs to the water main have been completed and the water storage replenished, but additional time is necessary for the disinfectant to saturate storage tanks and additional lines.

Officials are flushing dead-end mains and fire hydrants Friday. Residents can expect slight discoloration and varying water pressure to continue.

A water sample is expected to be sent to the Heath Department Monday.
