Boil Water Notice
MERKEL, Texas -

A water line break forces residents to boil water before use. According to City Manager Steve Campbell, the break forced water pressure to drop below acceptable standards.

Residents should boil water before using. The water should be brought to a vigorous boil for at least two minutes before using it to drink, cook, or make ice.

KTXS will let you know when the water is safe to use.
