Also, please note the boil water notice has been extended to north side residents.

Due to a power outage at the Eagle Mountain Treatment Plant, and subsequent loss of water pressure in the system, the City of Fort Worth is notifying customers in a large portion of north Fort Worth to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc.).

Fort Worth is extending the boil water notice to include a total of 212,000 Fort Worth residents. Nine cites that buy drinking water from Fort Worth – Haslet, Keller, Lake Worth, Northlake, Roanoke, Saginaw, Southlake, Trophy Club and Westlake – have been notified. If you reside in one of these cities, please contact your water utility directly with any questions.
