Boil Water Notice for RS CR 1410, 1395, & 1396

Public Notice to Boil Water

Due to a line break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, South Rains Special Utility District, PWS #1900009, 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 the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Rachel Webb at (903)473-2122 office or (903)268-4070 mobile, or Michael Anglin at (903)473-6371 mobile.
