New Deal Issues Water Boil Notice

The City of New Deal issued a boil water notice Friday in response to low chlorine levels in its drinking water. The cause of the low chlorine levels is unknown at this time.

The City of Lubbock provides water to the City of New Deal. However, samples taken from the Lubbock water supply at the City of New Deal meter contain appropriate levels of chlorine. Officials from the City of New Deal are working to address the cause of the low chlorine issue. 

Total chlorine residual levels typically range between 0.5 and 2.0 mg/L.  This range of chlorine is necessary to keep bacteria from forming in the pipelines. The samples from the City of Lubbock water supply had a 1.5 mg/L chlorine level.
