Due to a leak and water line break, the Texas Commission on Environmental
Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Huxley water system PWS 2100019 to
notify customers of the need to boil their water in the Oakdale, New
Harmony, and Possum Trot areas 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 Huxley City
Hall at 936-368-2266 or Huxley Water Treatment Plant at 936-368-2633.
