News from South Ellis County Water Supply Corp.:

Boil Water Notice April 2, 2017

Due to a storm on April 2, 2017, which caused a waterline to be washed away, members/customers who experienced very low pressure or no water, with service in the following area are on a Boil Water Notice, until further notice:

Located East of Interstate 35, Highway 77 and along Highway 34

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.
