City of Killeen releases video update on latest WCID water system concerns

“We’re going to fight together…trust the process” amid boil water notice

KILLEEN, Texas (Oct. 25, 2021; 4p.m. Update) – Please see video update from the City of Killeen’s Executive Director of Public Works, Jeffery Reynolds.

*New Information*

-“We’ve seen the residuals coming in from WCID at all of our tank locations where we take in the water,” Reynolds said. “The residuals are going up to a reasonable rate. We’re beginning to push that water out to the system. You’re going to see guys out flushing, our Public Works staff will be flushing hydrants and pulling samples. As soon as we can get this boil water notice lifted, after testing is done, we will do so, but we will only do that when we know that the water is safe.”

-WCID is, again, in the process of flushing two, large water storage tanks on Water Street and due to the amount of water that will be running across the street, we’ve closed Water Street between 48th and 54th streets.

-Our Fire Department has delivered about 50 cases of water to those who are unable to boil water. All verified requests have been fulfilled.

-For clarification: WCID has said it’s chlorine conversion will last through Nov. 21. The City of Killeen’s boil water notice is not on the same timeline and is not anticipated to last that long. TCEQ will provide updates once tests are complete as a guide.
