McClelland Water Supply: Public Notice to Boil Water

Mandatory Language Template:
Public Notice to Boil Water




Date:  August 19, 2015


Due to a break in the main line, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, McClelland Water Supply Corporation, PWS ID# 2100011 to notify customers east of the Oakland Church on FM 139, 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 Vince DiVerdi at 936-598-8478 or Renita Hudman at 936-598-9781.
