Boil Water Notice 5/30/2016

City of Strawn
Public Notice to Boil Water

Due to a loss of pressure from a water main break, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required our water system, City of Strawn/Public Water System Id Number 1820005, to notify customers 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 Danny Miller at (254) 672-5311 or (254) 631-4525 or email:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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