This comes after city officials issued a boil water notice Sunday for Houston's main water system.

According to the notice, the water pressure dropped below the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's required minimum of 20 PSI during a power outage at the East Water Purification Plan around 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

Houston Public Works has advised the public to not drink the system water without boiling it first to ensure all harmful bacteria and microbes are killed. Bring all water to a boil for at least two minutes, then let it cool before using.

Samples are being collected for testing, and officials will notify residents when the notice is suspended.
