A boil water notice issued on Thursday for Far North Fort Worth has been rescinded, with coliform bacteria found in none of the 46 water samples analyzed, according to city officials.
Fort Worth water officials took “the necessary corrective actions” to restore adequate pressure and has provided the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality with testing results that indicate the water no longer requires boiling, according to a city news release.
The affected area was bordered by Sendera Boulevard on the north, Willow Springs Road on the west, Haslet city limits on the east and Bonds Ranch Road on the south. The notice also includes the Trails of Fossil Creek and the Fossil Hill subdivisions.
The notice was issued due to a loss of pressure in parts of the water system. TCEQ required the city to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.
But what caused the problem? According to the city, an operational error caused the Bradley elevated water tank on Harmon Road to drain, resulting in the pressure dropping below 20 pounds per square inch in some areas.
