The City of Breckenridge has issued a boil water notice for the 100 and 200 blocks of North Front Street and has rescinded the boil water notice that was issued on March 29.

The boil water that was lifted includes the following area: North Breckenridge Avenue between Lindsey and Fourth Street, and the 100 and 200 blocks of East First and East Second streets. 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 the new BWN issued for North Front Street, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required the system to notify all customers to boil their water prior to consumption due to conditions in the water system which have occurred. 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.
