UPDATE: On Tuesday, July 30, Megargel city officials said the boil order was lifted. So residents no longer need to boil their water.
MEGARGEL (KFDX/KJTL) — The city of Megargel is under a boil order after a main water pipe busted Friday afternoon.
According to Megargel city officials, a large part of the town had been affected by the break near 10th and Cedar streets.
The water main broke just before 2 p.m. and within about four hours officials had the pipes fixed.
While the pipes have been fixed, the town is still under a boil order while officials continue testing the water.
They are unsure when they will release the boil order, so stick with Texoma’s Homepage for the latest.
