A city-wide boil water notice is still in place. Water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil for three minutes. In lieu of boiling water, residents may use bottled water.

Emergency water use restrictions are still in place to ensure water is available for firefighting and basic needs.

The public is still being asked to avoid water usage that is not completely necessary:
• Avoid all outdoor water use and minimize indoor use immediately.
• Don’t use water for irrigation or testing of irrigation equipment
• Don’t wash vehicles, including at commercial car wash facilities
• Don’t wash pavement or other surfaces
• Don’t add water to a pool or spa
• Don’t conduct foundation watering
• Don’t operate an ornamental fountain or pond, other than aeration necessary to

City and County officials have made arrangements to provide extra water for those with special needs, who are unable to boil water, who or need bottled water for work. Seven distribution sites have been established throughout Austin for residents in need of water for use outside the home/at work. Schools are providing water on site for students to use.

Supplies are limited to one gallon of water per person and up to four gallons for a family of four. City of Austin volunteers will be staffing the water distribution sites. Pick up will be located at the driveway entrance of the sites.
