Boil Water Notice for Booker Street Only

Due to a broken valve being replaced, causing a drop in the water pressure below 0 PSI, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system for the CITY OF WELLS

ID# 0370004 to notify customers of the need to boil their water before consumption.

The only structures affected by this water line break are listed: All customers living on Booker Street.

To ensure the destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled before 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 Operator: Roy Shanks (936) 212-3220 or City Hall at (936) 867-4615

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