Houston Lifts Boil Water Notice for 2 Million Residents

HeadlineNov 29, 2022

In Texas, the city of Houston has lifted a boil water notice for 2 million residents after a power outage at a city water purification plant over the weekend. Many businesses were forced to close, and schools will remain closed through Wednesday as Houston officials review water samples to determine whether it’s safe to drink or use. Many residents said they didn’t hear about the boil water advisory until Monday, though it was issued a day earlier.
