UPDATE: The notice has been rescinded. People who live in the area no longer have to boil their water.


Due to a fire hydrant replacement, The City of Palestine has issued a Boil Water Notice for homes on West Reagan Street between Magnolia and Queen Streets.

People in the affected areas should boil their water before consuming it until further notice.

To destroy all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled before using it.

The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then kept that way for two minutes. Instead of boiling water, you can buy bottled water or obtain water from another suitable source.
