CLYDE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Citizens were instructed by the City of Clyde Sunday to boil all water before consumption due to a water main break, according to city officials.
The city announced the boil water notice after the break of a 12-inch water main was discovered, and plans to repair it were made.
Repairs were completed Monday afternoon, and water supply was restored. Officials still estimate that city water will need to be boiled for at least one more day.
On Monday, Clyde school campuses made announcements asking parents to send their children to school Tuesday with either bottled water or water bottles to be filled with a supply of clean water the schools received Monday.
Students may bring a water bottle (with lid) to school tomorrow. We have safe water stations set up in each hallway to fill up their bottle.— Clyde Elementary (@clydeelem) October 15, 2018
Due to the boil ban – we are encouraging our students to bring bottled water to school tomorrow.
Today we had two clean water stations set up and we will do the same tomorrow.
Thank you.— Clyde Intermediate (@ClydeInt) October 15, 2018
Please send your H.S. student with a bottle of water or a sports bottle to fill with water tomorrow. We had clean drinking water brought to all campuses today and will continue to bring water in until the boil water notice is lifted by the city— Clyde High School (@clyde_hs) October 15, 2018
City officials will notify residents when the notice has been lifted.
