Ft. It is worth upgrading water

Please also note that the notice about boiling water has been extended to residents of the north side.

Due to a power outage at the Eagle Mountain sewage treatment plant and subsequent loss of water pressure in the system, the City of Fort Worth is notifying customers in much of northern Fort Worth to boil their water (e.g., hand washing) / face, brush teeth, drink, etc.).

Fort Worth expands the boiling water notice to a total of 212,000 Fort Worth residents. Nine cities buying drinking water from Fort Worth – Haslet, Keller, Lake Worth, Northlake, Roanoke, Saginaw, Southlake, Trophy Club, and Westlake – have been notified. If you live in one of these cities, contact your water utility directly with any questions.
