The notice was sent on the heels of recent flooding that had filled the lakes that feed Austin's supply with silt, mud and debris.
At the time the notice was announced last Monday, officials said the water needed extended filtration and treatment before it is safe to consume. There was no indication of bacterial infiltration.
