Tahoka residents no longer under boil water notice

TAHOKA, TX (KCBD) - After two water line breaks in less than a week, and days of being under a boil water notice, residents are now cleared to drink the water right out of the tap.

The first water line break happened on Friday, August 13th in the early morning hours. It was repaired in a matter of hours. The water was shut off city-wide. The water needed to be tested and couldn't be until the following Monday.

The second water line break happened Tuesday, August 17th when a worker contracted by the State to install new handicap ramps has hit a 6 inch waterline. The water, once again, had to be shut off city-wide until the repairs were made.

Six days later, the water has been tested and cleared to drink.

If you want to be on the Tahoka calling system, you can go to the city offices at 1612 Lockwood Street in Tahoka and fill out the registration card.
