Boil water notice effect Friday, March 29

A boil water notice was put in place Friday, March 29 for North Breckenridge Avenue between Lindsey and 4th, as well as the 100 and 200 blocks of East 1st and 2nd, 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.
