Boil water order issued for part of Saltillo

SALTILLO – Officials issued a boil water order Thursday for residents around the Saltillo Elementary School after a line lost water pressure while workers were installing a valve.

Mayor W.K. Webb said the affected area basically includes the school, Pinecrest subdivision, and homes along Old Saltillo Road. School officials have been advised to post no-drinking notices at school water fountains, the mayor said.

“It’s not a lot of people involved. There’s just a few,” Webb said of the affected area.

The mayor said officials will begin taking water samples today to test for contaminants, but said the boil advisory is likely to remain in force until Wednesday.
