TEXAS CITY, Texas – The City of Texas City has lifted their boil water notice for residents on Sunday morning after it was put in place on Saturday.

The city said in an advisory sent to residents that the water was tested and was declared safe for all normal activities.

The advisory was issued after Friday night’s power outage that affected more than 20,000 customers.

The Gulf Coast Water Authority, the city’s water supplier, said on Saturday it was a “precautionary measure” as water pressure fell below the required threshold due to the power outage, according to the City of Texas City in a notice to residents.

Power was restored for most customers between 11 p.m. Friday night and 3 a.m. Saturday night.
