The city is advising everyone in the city or those who get their water from the City of Houston to boil their water for at least two to three minutes before using it to drink, bathe or brush teeth.   

Mayor Sylvester Turner said that the earliest the city can lift the notice is either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

“We believe the water is safe but based on regulatory requirements when pressure drops below 20 psi we are obligated to issue a boil water notice,” Turner said. “The City is submitting its plan to TCEQ for approval tonight.”

Meanwhile, Gov. Greg Abbott announced that he has directed the Texas Division of Emergency Management and the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality to give all available resources to the city.

“The State of Texas is immediately responding and deploying support to Houston as they work to get a safe supply of water back online,” Abbott said in a statement. “We have been in contact with Mayor (Sylvester) Turner to offer the full support of the state, and we’re currently working to fulfill the city’s request for help with rapid turnaround of water sample results.

The areas also include several suburbs of Houston, including Bellaire, Friendswood, Galena Park, Humble, Pasadena, Pearland, Clear Lake, La Porte, and other areas in Harris County, Fort Bend County and Montgomery County.

The city reported that the water pressure dropped below the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s required minimum of 20 PSI during a power outage at the East Water Purification Plant at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

HISD, other school district closed due to notice

The boil water notice has also forced several school districts to close on Monday, the day students return from Thanksgiving break. Houston ISD, Aldine ISD, Spring Branch ISD and Pasadena ISD are among the school districts that have closed operations for Monday.

Other school districts, such as Cy-Fair ISD, Katy ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Spring ISD, Clear Creek ISD and Alief ISD will remain open as they will supply students with bottled water and hand sanitizer.

Houston Community College also announced that all of its facilities will be closed on Monday, while students and staff will work remotely. Lone Star College announced that two of its campuses, North Greenspoint and North Victory, are closed on Monday.
