Residents of Plainview need to be aware of this Boiling Water Advisory for drinking or brushing your teeth.

Mike Bergdorf, the Public Works Director for the City of Plainview notes that residents in the area on city water need to boil their water until further notice. The City has been running on well water because the water tower is being painted.  Residents should bring any drinking water to a rolling boil for one minute before use, or use bottled water at this time. This pertains to drinking or brushing your teeth, or any food preparation,  but taking a shower is fine.  The water supply is in the process of being tested for the safety of the community at this point in time.
