SAN ANGELO, Texas — The City of San Angelo announced Monday the removal of the "do-not-drink" notice in the northern industrial area of the city.

According to a release from the City, the water utility has been successful in providing information to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, allowing the northern industrial area (previously the white area on the map) to return to normal water usage.

The decision was made after ongoing sampling and improvements to deficiencies made in the northern industrial area, the release said.

To ensure the safety of businesses and residents in this area, the City will continue to take samples from the PaulAnn and northern industrial areas for the foreseeable future. The northern industrial area will continue to be valved off from the rest of the water system as a precautionary measure.

Guidance for RO systems

When restrictions are lifted and returned to normal water usage, it is recommend for residents who have home water filtration units and/or filters to replace their filters before consuming water through those units. It is also recommended to contact the filtration provider to consult with them regarding inspections and/or replacement.
