Baytown issues boil water notice for public water system

Because of a water main break the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City of Baytown public water system 1010003 to notify all customers, individuals, or employees that this establishment or business has implemented a boil water notice.

Officials said the order is for residents and businesses located along the Interstate 10 corridor from Spur 330 to Garth Road.

Repairs are currently being made and the water system will be restored and tested prior to the rescinding of this notice.

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, all customers, individuals, or employees 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 city will notify customers, individuals, or employees that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes. 

For more information, contact Public Works Assistant Director Sterling Beaver at 281-420-5300.
