Attention: Residents of the City of Sulphur Springs, along Main Street between Reservoir and League Street.
Due to a water line break the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Sulphur Springs (ID: 1120002) public water system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc). Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). This notice applies to 25 customers along Main Street between Reservoir and League Street.
To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.
In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.
Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact James Jordan, Utilities Director at (903) 348-2725 and the Utility Billing office is located at 125 S. Davis Street.
