Boil advisory issued for some in Texarkana due to water main break


TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) – A boil water advisory has been issued for some citizens in Texarkana, Texas due to reduced distribution system pressure and loss of water while repairs were being made at the water main on Columbine Lane.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the city to issue this boil advisory and notify customers to boil their water before consuming it in any way. The city says the loss of water happened when a contractor hit the water line at 4023 Columbine Lane. Customers affected are between Richmond Road and Honeysuckle Lane, including Poinsettia Drive between Robin Lane and Columbine Lane.


The boil advisory will remain in effect until the issue has been corrected and a bacteriological survey shows the water is safe to drink. Customers will be notified when the advisory is lifted.

Anyone with questions should contact Rick Barton or Chris Cagle with Texarkana Water Utilities. Barton can be reached at 903-798-3850 or 903-277-0859. Cagle can be reached at 903-798-3850 or 501-288-5195.
