Coppell boil water notice expected to continue until Thursday

The water supply is being replenished in Coppell after residents were asked to conserve water due to a power failure in the area.

A power line at E. Sandy Lake and Kimbel Court fell, knocking out power to the area, including the Village Parkway Pump Station. 

The system's main backup power source ran for several hours before eventually failing.

The outage caused low or no water pressure for residents.

The city is asked those living in Coppell to use water for emergencies only.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required Coppell to tell all customers to boil their water prior to consuming.

The boil water notice is still in effect, until further notice.

City crews are working to flush out the water system.

Coppell says residents and businesses should expect a buildup of air in their water lines and that they should open their faucets to flush the air out.

Stephenville police say lifeguards performed CPR after Colt was found unresponsive in the pool. Police are investigating but say at this time all indicators are that it’s a tragic accident.

The boil water notice is expected to be lifted Thursday morning after submitting a water sample to the Trinity River Authority on Wednesday afternoon.

In the meantime, free bottled water is available to Coppell residents at the Cozby Library until 8 p.m.
