The City of Breckenridge has lifted one recent Boil Water Notice and issued another notice for residents in northwest Breckenridge.

New Notice

The new Boil Water Notice is for water customers in the area from North Baylor to North Pecan streets and from West Second Street to the north end of the system (see map below).

Due to conditions in the water system, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the City 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.

Rescinded Notice

The City of Breckenridge has rescinded the Boil Water Notice for the area from East Walker to East Connell streets and from North Albany to North Dubois streets. The original Boil Water Notice was issued last week.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Breckenridge to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform water customers that due to current interruption in service, water from the  system needed to be boiled prior to consumption.

The City took the necessary corrective actions to restore adequate pressure, disinfectant levels, and/or bacteriological quality and has provided TCEQ with testing results indicating that the water no longer requires boiling.

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