Boil water notice put on; two rescinded

The city of Breckenridge declared a boil water notice for the 100 and 200 blocks of West Wheeler Street, effective Wednesday, Feb. 6. The city also rescinded two boil water notices for Davis Road, Brown Road and the 800 block of Industrial Loop, as well as for North Parks from Jeanette to Second Street, according to releases 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.

The notice for Davis and Brown Road, along with the 800 block of Industrial Loop was put on Friday, Feb. 1 due to a break in the waterline from construction. The notice for North Parks from Jeanette to Second Street were put on Jan. 15 due to the same issue.

If you have any questions, feel free to call the city offices at 254-559-8287.
