Houston, TX (fourth largest city in USA) under city wide boil notice.
During the power outage at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, water pressure at the plant briefly dropped below required minimum levels. Water pressure in the entire system is currently back above minimum levels for safety, Jones said Sunday.

Low pressure hurts water quality and can be a threat to public health. A reduction or loss of pressure in a water distribution system can result in backflow, when water flows in the wrong direction, allowing contaminants to enter drinking water.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner's office tweeted overnight that city officials believe the water is safe. A boil water notice was issued out of an abundance of caution and to comply with regulatory standards, according to Houston Water Director Yvonne Williams Forrest.

Kids stayed home today from this, and a good chance they’ll be home tomorrow as well.

Probably related to illegals and their nasty ways.

Why West University Place, and Bellaire, both inside the City of Houston, have their own water plants, as well as a few other inclusive cities that Houston ran over in its massive, quick growth. Gotta be wealthy to live in those cities.

That’s what is bothering me.

There are multiple treatment facilities in Houston. This shouldn’t have affected the entire city.

The GLPer in me calls bull on the cover story.

We’re live Liberty County, and on a well, so this doesn’t affect us, but my wife works in Pasadena, and the kids go to school near the Beltway/I-45 on the south side.

I’m still not finding any real info on what’s the root cause, or whether on not they’ll have it finished by tomorrow.

We didn’t get the notification from my kids’ school about the closure today until 10 PM last night.

That’s really damn hard on those that rely on school for their kids so they can go to work.
