Update as of Oct. 18 at 5:07 p.m.: The city of Denton has lifted a Boil Water Notice for the area generally south of I-35, north of Highland Park Road, west of Kendolph Drive and east of Western Boulevard, which includes Mean Green Village and Victory Hall.

The notice, which was issued on Oct. 17, was lifted following official test results that confirmed  residents no longer need to boil water before consumption, according to a city press release.

In an administrative announcement sent to faculty and staff, UNT said building occupants in Mean Green Village and Victory Hall can use the water for drinking, showering, hand-washing and cooking.

Champs cafeteria will resume normal operations on Oct. 21 while activities and events taking place at Mean Green Village this weekend — which includes tonight’s soccer game and tomorrow’s football game — will go on as planned, with the exception of tonight’s Hall of Fame dinner which has been moved to the University Union, according to the administrative announcement.

Update as of Oct. 18 at 10:26 a.m.: The boil water notice issued Thursday is still in affect, the city of Denton tweeted. Approximately 600 customers in the area generally south of I-35, north of Highland Park Road, west of Kendolph Drive and east of Western Boulevard are affected.

Students at Mean Green Village are advised to only use the water for flushing toilets, UNT Senior Communications Specialist Kris Muller said. Champs cafeteria is still closed and students are being directed to other dining halls.

Specific to Victory Hall residents, the water should only be used for flushing toilets and not for showering, hand washing, toothbrushing or drinking from water foundation or faucets, Muller said.

Students can use the Pohl Recreation Center for showering starting on Friday at 6 a.m. and bottled water is available in the Victory Hall lobby.

The Victory Hall front desk will remain open as a point of contact and any updates will be disseminated throughout the building and by email, Muller said.

The city of Denton said on Twitter they will provide an update regarding this issue by this afternoon.

Original story:

Residents of Victory Hall are encouraged not to consume water from the dormitory after the UNT Facilities department reported contaminated water around the Mean Green Village athletic complex Thursday evening.

The source of the contamination is unknown at this time, UNT Senior Communications Specialist Kris Muller said, but the water is unsafe to consume according City of Denton standards. UNT Facilities said students at Victory may still shower or use toilets, but Champs Cafeteria will remain closed as of now.
