WESLACO, Texas (AP) - A boil water notice has been lifted for a South Texas city following issues with the treatment and delivery system.

City officials in Weslaco on Thursday announced all water meant for public consumption no longer has to be boiled.

A statement from the city of about 37,000 says operational problems Tuesday night led to a treatment plant not able to deliver water.

System pressure was restored Wednesday but officials required the boiling of water as test results were sent to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Weslaco authorities on Thursday announced a return to regular water service.
