(HEARNE) Some residents in Hearne need to continue boiling their water today. 

The City of Hearne and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a boil water notice this weekend for customers in the Bethany-Hearne Water Supply Corporation. City officials said a pump failure caused ground water storage tanks to run low, leaving the water supply no choice but to turn off the remaining pumps so that the tanks could re-fill and to prevent any damage. While water and the pumps are now back on, it will be a day or 2 until the all-clear is given. All water for consumption should be boiled 2 minutes.
