PINEHURST — Water is once again safe for consumption following approved test results from TCEQ on Wednesday.

A boil water notice for the City of Pinehurst, which was issued Monday afternoon, was lifted shortly after noon, Wednesday, Oct. 31, following confirmation of positive test results from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The notice was originally issued shortly after 4 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29, after work crews ruptured a water main on West Martin, while working on a sewer project for the city.
