As the construction crews on U.S. Highway 180 East work to move the fire hydrants out of the ditches alongside the highway, residents in the area will be under a Boil Water Notice. Specifically, effective Aug. 13, the residents and businesses on the north side of U.S. Highway 180 from 1851 U.S. Highway 180 E. to 2971 U.S. Highway 180 E. are under a Boil Water Notice.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires that the City of Breckenridge notify all customers that they need 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.
