The City of Kilgore says it's still working to identify the source of a massive water loss that is preventing them from supplying water to the city — and that a boil notice may remain in place for more than a week.

"Our crews are working diligently and at great risk to locate and repair," the city said. "The optimistic expectation is that we will locate the source within 24 hours and repair it within 48 of that. However, we do not anticipate being able to rescind the boil water notice for 7 or more days due to the time it will take to refill the entire distribution system and become compliant with disinfection and pressure requirements."
