The City of Santa Rosa today announced that the boil water notice issued on Monday following the loss of system pressure has been rescinded.
After water pressure was restored, the city collected and submitted samples to the Texas Department of State Health Services laboratory for analysis. The lab found that no bacteria were present in the water, and that the chlorine residual present in the water exceeded state standards.
The boil water notice was issued as a precautionary measure due to low system pressure. At no time was there an indication that contaminants were present in the city’s drinking water supply.
Moving forward, the city is taking steps to prevent the recurrence of this problem. Repairs to the city’s second plant continue, and once completed later this week, the city will have back-up treatment capacity.
