The boil water advisory for the City of White Settlement has now been lifted. We have taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and have provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of February 21, 2021.
If you have not been home or haven’t been running water through your lines much during the boil notice you may want to flush your water faucets. This can be done by turning on the cold water tap at all faucets and run water for about two minutes. Try to begin with the faucet that is the highest up in your home or building and then open the other faucets one at a time moving from the highest to the lowest.
If you have a water dispenser/ice maker on your refrigerator it is a good idea to flush and clean them. Your owner’s manual should have specific instructions, but basic flushing and cleaning should include changing out your filter cartridge, throw out ice, flush the water dispenser for 3-5 minutes, run the ice maker for 1 hour and throw out all the ice, and washing and sanitizing the ice bin area.
