Boil Water Notice
MERKEL, Texas -

The boil water notice for Merkel was lifted Saturday. A water main break forced the city to issue the Friday boil water notice.

Residents had to bring their water to a rolling boil for at least two minutes prior to using it because the water main break caused the water pressure to drop below allowable standards.

The pressure was restored Saturday and testing results indicate the water no longer needs to be boiled.
