ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) -

UPDATE: ECUD tells CBS7 that people closest to Tripp and 16th in Odessa should have water returning tonight, Monday, November 22nd, around 10 pm. The entire area should have water by the early morning hours. The boil water notice is in effect until 6 pm Tuesday evening.

====

The Ector County Utility District says customers west of Redondo Avenue have been without water since 9 a.m.

The outage is due to work on pipes at 16th Street and Tripp Avenue, which is part of a major infrastructure project.

Water service should be back to normal by 4 p.m. today.

UPDATE: Due to the construction that caused a water outage, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Ector County Utility District public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions)
