According to a city of Killeen Press Release, a water main break has interrupted service, which necessitates a boil water order for the Brookside Apartments in Killeen.

Crews are expected to remain until the repair is completed and water service is restored.
Once service is restored, all water must be boiled prior to consumption until water sampling results confirm that no contamination occurred.

Once that happens the public will be notified.

Everyone at this address should follow these directions.

The City of Killeen is required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g. washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.).

Most people including children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are vulnerable to harmful bacteria.

Practicing this method will ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes.

This is for drinking water, cooking, and for making ice.
