Boil Water Notice

lic Notice to Boil Water

Due to pump failure and pressure loss in the water system , the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system City of West, PWS ID # 1550009, to notify customers of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that thewater is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.

The Boil Water Notice takes effect immediately as of June 30, 2019 at 1:30 P.M. for the entire town.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact C.J. Gillaspie, Public Works Directorat 254-366-1503.
