Austin's boil-water notice was lifted for all customers Tuesday morning.

The boil-water notice has been lifted for all Austin Water customers. Residents no longer need to boil their tap water before drinking it or cooking with it.

“Today we can report that Austin’s water system has been restored to normal operations and the boil water notice has been lifted for all our customers,” Austin Water Director Greg Meszaros said in a press release. “There is still a lot to do to repair water pipelines that were damaged by the freezing weather, but customers should only experience occasional impacts from that work. We are thankful for the community’s efforts to conserve water over this past week to help us restore our operations today.”

The notice was originally put in place last Wednesday. Most customers were removed from the notice on Monday, but residents in Northwest and Southwest Austin were still being told to boil their water.
