Boil advisory issued in Mineral Wells until further notice

MINERAL WELLS – Customers of the Mineral Wells Public Service District are under a boil water advisory until at least Monday.

Roy Radabaugh, a Mineral Wells Public Service District commissioner, said Friday evening a six-inch water line was broken during highway construction, leading to the precaution for many customers.

“There was a line break where work was being done at the intersection of Old Route 21 and Old 14,” he said. “There was a lot of water going through and it stirred up the sediment in the pipes and caused it to come out, so the boil water advisory was issued as a precaution.”

Radabaugh said the advisory will be in effect until at least Monday after the district receives the results of a bacteria test.

Radabaugh said not all customers are covered by the advisory. He said those areas not under the advisory are Rockport, Limestone, Windy and Slate.

“The advisory covers what we call the central hub that serves most of the area along with Woodridge and Windsor,” he said.
