UPDATE 4:37 PM: The boil water notice for Copperas Cove's Mountain Top Pressure Plane has been lifted effective immediately.

According to Copperas Cove Public Relations Director Kevin Keller, residents who've had their water service restored are no longer being asked to boil their water before consumption.


 

The City of Copperas Cove has rescinded the Stage 4B water conservation restrictions that were put in place on February 17th after prolonged power outages reduced the city's water supply.

That supply is now sufficient for regular use.

City Public Relations Director Kevin A. Keller announced shortly after 7PM Monday that restrictions were lifted effective immediately, but that a boil water notice remains in effect for the Mountain Top Pressure Plane.

Keller said the Taylor Mountain Water Tank had reached sufficient water capacity and the system was fully charged Monday evening. Service was finally restored to the Mountain Top Pressure Plane after days of outage.

Again, although restrictions have been lifted, water customers in the Mountain Top Pressure Plane are still being asked to boil their tap water until further notice.

"Water conservation is a community effort and we applaud our residents and business owners for their continued support, patience and adherence to the restrictions," Keller said. "Although all restrictions have been lifted, voluntary conservation efforts are always recommended and encouraged for the sustainment of our community."

The City of Killeen also lifted water restrictions Monday. The city had been under Stage 5 conservation measures due to extremely low water levels across their system. Hilary Shine with the City of Killeen announced shortly before 5PM Monday that water levels had stabilized, and normal indoor and outdoor water use could resume.

However, Shine reminded citizens of the need to report leaks to the city at (254) 501-6320 or wsoperations@killeentexas.gov as soon as possible, including leaks they might notice in their neighborhood.
