BYERS, Texas (TNN) - The city of Byers issued a boil order Wednesday due to low water pressure.

City officials say the circumstances causing the order were beyond their control.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

All customers should boil their water prior to consumption, including before washing hands or face, brushing teeth and drinking.

Children, seniors and those with weakened immune systems are vulnerable to harmful bacteria.
