Thousands of northwest Fort Worth residents must boil their drinking water through at least Friday morning as a precaution against possible contamination, city and school officials said Thursday.
The impacted area is bordered by Sendera Boulevard on the north, Willow Springs Road on the west, Haslet city limits on the east and Bonds Ranch Road on the south. It includes the Trails of Fossil Creek and Fossil Hill subdivision, according to a statement from the city.
Water may have been contaminated when pressure dropped after a tank was inadvertently drained Wednesday, according to a statement from the city.
Six Northwest Independent School District schools are in the affected area: V.R. Eaton High School, Truett Wilson Middle School, Sonny & Allegra Nance Elementary School, Carl E. Schluter Elementary School, J.C. Thompson Elementary School and Sendera Ranch Elementary School.
