Original story

The City of Abilene provided an update Thursday on the work at its water plants.

According to the City's latest update, progress at its water plants continue and as of 12:07 p.m. Thursday water service should be restored to all customers but conservation is still recommended.

If customers do not have water service, it may be because of frozen pipes. Customers should call the water department hotline at 325-676-6000 for help shutting off water to their home and minimizing leakage as temperatures rise and pipes thaw, the release said.

A boil water notice is in effect for all water consumed out of the public water supply. 

Additionally, AEP and Taylor Electric have restored to most of the residents affected by outages.

Residents who are still without power should contact their electricity provider.

Atmos Energy, the natural gas provider, is asking customers as much energy as possible to avoid outages, lower thermostats to 68 degrees or less, set water heater temperature to 120 degrees,
