City of Petrolia issues boil notice

PETROLIA, TX (KAUZ) - Officials with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a boil notice for the city of Petrolia Monday morning.

Residents there are being asked to boil their water for the next 48 hours due to a loss of pressure in the water distribution system

Samples of water in the area have been sent off for testing, which is expected to take at least 24 hours.

For the safety of children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems, it's recommended you bring water to a rolling boil, boil it for two minutes, and cool down prior to consumption.
