Boil Water Notice for 600-700 Blocks of W Elm
A boil water notice was put in place for the 600 through 700 blocks of West Elm Street, effective Jan. 13, according to a release from the city.
Due to a water line break from construction, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify all customers within the specified block to boil their water for at least two minutes prior to consumption, according to the release.
Boiling your water for at least two minutes ensures that all harmful bacteria or microbes are destroyed. This includes water used for cooking, drinking and ice-making. If you do not want to boil your water, the release also states it is appropriate to use water from other sources, such as bottled water.
The notice will be in effect for a minimum of 48 hours. When it is no longer required to boil your water, the system will notify all impacted customers in the area.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the city offices at 254-559-8287.
