ELECTRA (KFDX/KJTL) — After two days, a boil order in Electra has been rescinded.

The boil order notice was put in place on Wednesday, September 6, by the City of Electra.

According to city officials, a power failure at Midway Pump caused a drop in water pressure. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required an immediate boil order put in place.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the
water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption
purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no
longer requires boiling prior to use as of Sep 8, 2023.
