UPDATE: Boil water notice lifted for these neighborhoods in the Lake Livingston area
HOUSTON – Authorities have lifted a boil water notice for the following subdivisions in the Lake Livingston area: Natasha Heights, Lakeland Hideaway, Cherokee Forest, and Green Acres. The Lake Livingston Water Supply Corporation’s general manager Kim Click told KPRC 2 the notice has been lifted Wednesday afternoon. The water authority had issued a statement that said the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality cited low chlorine in its systems, which prompted the boil water notice. All customers are asked to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face/brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and people with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions, according to the memo.
