AUSTIN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Office of Public Utility Counsel is helping residential consumers who have lost water service by providing locations of water distribution centers across the state where they can obtain drinking water.
Those without water service should contact their water utility. Residential consumers who have water service and have received a boil water notice should continue to boil their water until they are informed it is safe to drink by their water utility. Nearly 13 million Texans are now under a boil water advisory.
In addition, residential consumers can call 311 to help locate a water distribution center in their local area or to report a broken pipe or water main break.
