LYTLE, TexasUpdate (May 23):

The boil water notice for City of Lytle water customers was lifted Tuesday and city officials say the water is safe to consume.

The notice was issued on Saturday

“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 May 23, 2023,” City officials said in a press release.

Update (8 a.m., Sunday):

City of Lytle Water customers are under a boil water notice until further notice.

This means that residents are urged to boil their water before consuming it, which includes washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, cooking, etc.

Officials said they hope to lift the notice by noon on Tuesday, May 23.


Water will temporarily be shut down Saturday night for all City of Lytle Water customers for repairs on the public water main system, according to city officials.

The city will begin to decrease water pressure at 10 p.m. Saturday.

Repairs will start at 12:30 a.m., Sunday, and city officials said if the system drops below 20 psi, a boil water notice will be issued for all customers.

If the notice is issued, residents will be notified through the city’s notification system and on the city’s website.

We’ll bring more updates as they become available.
