A boil water notice went into effect Monday morning for Eastpoint residents/
The Eastpoint Water and Sewer Department said water main on Franklin Street was broken by a road crew, which reduced pressure in the system. When the pressure falls below a certain point, a boil water notice is required until the water can be tested for bacteria.
Any water used for drinking or cooking should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute. The precautionary boil water notice was to remain in effect until the tests on water samples show the water is safe to drink. The water department said they hoped water sample results would be returned on Wednesday, June 25.
