Boil water notice issued in San Marcos

Some San Marcos residents are under a boil water notice after a line break Saturday.

Maxwell Water Supply has issued a boil water notice for its customers in San Marcos after a loss of pressure from a main break.

The areas affected include Saddlebrook (Sun Communities), the North Point subdivision, Blanco River Walk, Post Road, Harris Hill road and any other customers that lost pressure during this event.

Any water that is to be used for consumption must be boiled at a “vigorous rolling boil” for two minutes before being cooled. 

Children, seniors and those with weakened immune systems are especially vulnerable to harmful bacteria and should not consume tap water. 

There is currently no word on how long this boil water notice will last.
