Due to a water well pump failure, the City of Fritch has issued a "Boil Water Notice" effective immediately.
City officials say the notice does not affect residents living inside city limits, but is actually for many residents living in several surrounding areas. A list of those include:
Lake Meredith Harbor
Officials say they're having the water tested Monday morning to see if it's contaminated, and they'll know more after that. However, the boil water notice will remain in effect until further notice. The fire department in Fritch also has plenty of water on hand that's still available to affected residents.
