Spring, Texas – January 9, 2019: Some Spring residents are being cautioned to boil their water due to possible E.coli contamination, according to KTRK.
Residents living in the Country Lake Estates, Spring Creek Oaks and Cypress Trace subdivisions are reportedly affected.
According to reports, the Bilma Public Utility District sent out notices to residents early Wednesday morning.
E.coli is a type of fecal coliform bacteria that is commonly found in the intestines of animals and humans. The presence of E.coli in water is a strong indication of recent sewage and/or animal waste contamination.
There are several different strains of E.coli with a wide variety of medical symptoms.
Officials with the district say they are working to rectify the issue and hope to have the problem resolved within 48 hours.
