Boil Water Notice February 15, 2017

Due to a water outage and low pressure last night and today, customers with service in the following areas are on a Boil Water Notice, until further notice.

FM 667, Hamrock Road, and Morgan Road Area

If you have experienced very low pressure or have been without water, please follow the instructions below:

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 Suzann Hyles, General Manager of South Ellis County Water Supply Corporation @ (972) 483-6885 or (972) 322-8777.

If a customer wishes to contact the TCEQ, they may call 512-239-4691.
