Boil notice for Como neighborhood

The City of Fort Worth asks residents along Farnsworth Avenue (between Horne and Prevost streets) to boil water for drinking and cooking until further notice. The boil water notice was issued Saturday as a precaution after samples this week tested positive for total coliform bacteria. The samples did not test positive for E. coli. While the boil water notice is in effect, the Fort Worth Water Department will provide bottled water to residents on the north and south sides of the 5200 to 5600 blocks of Farnsworth Avenue.


The Water Department is responsible for providing safe and reliable water and wastewater service with environmental integrity. Fort Worth has a total treatment capacity of 500 million gallons per day for drinking water and 166 million gallons per day for wastewater; with five water treatment plants and one reclamation facility. There are more than 3,336 miles of pipe in the water distribution system and 3,266 miles in the collection system. The system serves more than 1.2 million people in Fort Worth and surrounding areas, which include 30 water wholesale customers, 23 wastewater wholesale wastewater customers and three wholesale reclaimed water customers.
