Boil Water Notice 5-31-21

Boil Water Notice for Elm Creek Water Supply Corporation

 May 31, 2021

Due to a contractor hitting a 10” main, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the Elm Creek Water Supply Corporation public water system #1550026 to notify customers on Dove Rd (south of Siler), Stampede Rd, FM 2601 (from Moody Leon Rd to Brewster Creek Rd), Brewster Creek Rd, Munz Rd, Buckhorn Cemetery Rd, Buckhorn Lane, Meador Grove Rd and Moody Leon Rd 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).

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Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customers that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Elm Creek Water Supply Corporation office at 254-853-3838 or 603 Avenue E, Moody, TX.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
