UPDATE (4:30 a.m.): We have an additional statement from the City of San Angelo regarding the “Do Not Use” notice.

“In order for retail food establishments to operate, they must have hot and cold running water under pressure. In this case due to our “do not use” notice, this does not allow for restaurants to remain in operation at this time. Boiling water will not solve the issue because this is not a bacteriological issue that can be solved by boiling water.” the statement said.

Laboratory test results should be available within 24-48 hours.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact the Water Quality Lab at 325-481-2722.
