Houston’s boil water notice was lifted on Sunday, but there are a few things residents should do before drinking it.

Run cold water through the tap for 1 minute to bring clean water into the pipes.

Dump ice in the ice maker, and then make and dump at least three batches before using the ice.

Put home water softener through a regenerati­on cycle.

Remove and clean screens on faucets.
