Boil Water Notice

Mandatory Language Template:
Public Notice to Boil Water
Due to low water pressure below 20 pounds per square inch, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the City of Idalou water system PWS ID 152001 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 Suzette Williams at 806-892-2531.
