Effective Thursday, Nov. 15, the city-wide boil water notice that was issued on Nov. 12 for Breckenridge water customers has been rescinded, but as the repair work continues, new boil water notices were issued at the same time for two smaller areas of town.

The new boil water notices are for City of Breckenridge water customers in the following areas:

  • Harding to Harvey on Wheeler Street, Harding to Harvey on Hullum Street, and the 100-300 blocks of South Harvey Street.
  • Parks Street to North Breckenridge Avenue, and Seventh Street to Fourth Street.

According to the notice issued by the City of Breckenridge, due to problems in the water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.

The Boil Water Notice will be in effect for a minimum of 48 hours. When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, water system officials will notify each customer directly in the affected area.

For more information, call the City Offices at 254-559-8287 or the Water Office at 254-559- 7249.
