Coliform Bacteria Standard exceeded for October. This is not an emergency; E coli was not present in the water. There is no need to boil unless you have a compromised immune system.

Water Quality Reports
The Water/Sewer Department will begin repairing/ replacing water hydrants in various areas of the City. While work is being done (expect 4-8 hours) water will be turned off.
A written notice will be placed on the door of each residence or business affected, before work is to begin.
After water is turned back on, a boil order will be in effect until Department of Natural Resources gives their OK. It normally takes 2-3 days for DNR to OK.
BOIL ORDER ONLY AFFECTS PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED BY THE CITY OF HOUSTON.
Under a boil-water advisory, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that water be brought to a rolling boil for one minute before it is consumed in order to kill protozoa, bacteria and viruses.
While loss of pressure does not necessarily mean the water has been contaminated, it does mean that pathogens may be able to enter the piped-water system and thus be carried to consumers.
