Belton water main break

A map of Belton shows the areas that were put under a boil water notice after experiencing low water pressure because of a water main break. The notice was lifted Monday morning.


BELTON —  After a broken water line on Friday., a boil water notice was  issued for the  area east  of Highway 317/Main Street, south of East 10th, north of Nolan Creek, and to the eastern city limits of Belton. 

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials notify the public that the water is safe for consumption.

The water main break occurred near the Interstate 35 frontage road and Central Avenue, according to a news release issued Friday.

Water should be brought to a vigorous boil for two minutes and then cooled before drinking.
