CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — A boil water notice for a Cedar Park neighborhood was lifted early Tuesday morning. The notice was put in place after crews in Cedar Park repaired a broken water main and restored water to about 600 people late Sunday night after working around the clock since noon Saturday. As crews worked to repair the main in the 300 block of Cypress Creek Road Saturday, 228 apartments in the nearby Cedar Park Town Homes lost water. Several nearby businesses were also affected.

Cedar Park Emergency Response Team volunteers delivered bottled and gallon jugs of water to those impacted. The city also provided portable restrooms for residents at Cedar Park Town Homes.

Huerta said the city had to order a special part from Houston Sunday to make necessary repairs to the main. A special excavation contractor also assisted city workers. Traffic in the area was reduced to two lanes while crews completed the repairs.
