A boil water notice has been issued for Kilgore after crews repaired a water main break Monday.

The break happened at the intersection of Boon and Andrews Streets, and the area affected is bounded by East Lantrip Street on the north, Parkview Street on the east, East North Street on the south and Highway 259 on the west.

Residents should boil water for two minutes and cool completely before using for drinking or consumption purposes, or purchase bottled water until the boil notice is rescinded.

When it is no longer necessary to boil water, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will issue a rescind notice.
