A boil-water notice put in place last week has been lifted in the Central parts of Austin as of Monday morning, according to Austin Water.
The notice went into effect—and is still in effect for other parts of Austin (in yellow above)—after a power outage and low pressure at the Ullrich Water Plant amid the historic winter storm that swept over Texas.
