A boil-water advisory has been issued for an East Texas town because of pipeline problems.

Officials with the Dallas-area town of Kemp on Friday said multiple water leaks have led to the safety warning.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Kemp water system to notify customers of the problems. The water leaks were detected around mid-week.

A spokesman for the town of about 1,200 did not immediately provide further details Friday.

Kemp, located 40 miles southeast of Dallas, also had water problems last year. Town officials in August suggested water be boiled because of a leaking pipeline system that needed repairs and shifting soil blamed on the drought.
